The "Mission Statement for the Town of Wilmington" is as follows: 



"The Town of Wilmington, as a municipal corporation, exists in order to deliver a 
wide range of municipal services to those who live, work or own property within the 
borders of Wilmington; and in order to make this community a good place to live, to 
work, and to raise and educate a family, those services must be responsive to the 
needs of the people. They must be effective and efficient. Principles of honesty, 
fairness, dependability and compassion must govern the actons of the officials and 
the employees of the Town. Those who work for the Town as employees or as members 
of boards, committees and commissions are recognized as its most important resource 
and the key to its success in serving the people of Wilmington." 



Endorsed by the Board of Selectmen May 22, 1989. 



TOWN OF WILMINGTON 
MASSACHUSETTS 



BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



Traffic issues and budget problems topped the Selectmen's agenda for 1990. In addition, the Board accepted, 
with deep regret, the resignation of Town Manager Reginald S. (Buzz) Stapczynski. 

Certainly one of the most critical decisions that the Board of Selectmen must make is the appointment of a 
Town Manager. While it is our solemn duty to reflect the wishes of the citizenry through setting townwide 
policy, the Town Manager is the individual responsible for directing the day to day implementation of our 
policies. Buzz Stapczynski has been an exceptional asset to the Town during his eleven years as Assistant 
Town Manager and Town Manager. His administrative, financial and leadership skills will be difficult to 
replace. After conducting a thorough search process, this Board interviewed three highly qualified 
applicants for the Town Manager's position. In June the Board of Selectmen, by a majority vote, appointed 
Michael A. Caira to serve as Temporary Town Manager. 

Due to the faltering economy in Massachusetts and the lack of additional state aid, Wilmington has been 
working under a "state of fiscal siege" throughout 1990. Unfortunately, the outlook for 1991 is not much 
brighter. The budget constraints have been particularly critical in preparing the FY-1991 budget. The 
Department of Revenue (DOR) ruled that the Town must decrease its tax levying capacity by over $800,000. 
This was necessary to adjust for a DOR ruling that School Building Assistance Bureau (SBAB) grants were 
erroneously exempted from the Town's levy limit. Working with outgoing Town Manager Stapczynski and 
Temporary Town Manager Caira, the Board has been able to minimize the effects of budget cuts on town 
services. An unsuccessful Proposition 2 1/2 override attempt necessitated budget reductions of $645,293 at 
an August 27th Special Town Meeting. Fortunately, personnel reductions have been achieved through attrition 
and not lay-off. 

Work towards resolving traffic congestion throughout local streets was dealt a significant blow with the 
closing of the Route 62/Burl ington Avenue bridge at the same time as planned reconstruction of Aldrich Road 
was occurring. Representatives of this Board, in addition to Representative Augustus Grace, Representat i ve i 
James Miceli, Senator Robert Buell and several town officials met on numerous occasions with the State 
Department of Public Works to fast track the bridge reconstruction project. In an effort to address 
concerns about fire protection and emergency response time the Town located a fire engine and a staffing 
complement on the Burlington Avenue side of the bridge. The Town's aggressiveness paid off as the bridge 
was reopened in mid-November ahead of schedule. The Board wishes to thank residents, particularly those 
living on Boutwell Street, Aldrich Road, Chestnut Street and Butters Row, for your patience during this tiiM 
of extreme inconvenience. 

Reconstruction of Aldrich Road, was completed in the fall. The Town's public works personnel are commended 
for their excellent effort. Once again residents, in particular Aldrich Road, residents demonstrated an 
exceptional degree of patience and cooperation during the period of reconstruction. This was an extensive 
project that required removal of trees and relocation of utility poles in an effort to widen the street. 
The entire street running from Shawsheen Avenue to the Billerica town line was regraded and repaved. 

The Town is working with area businesses and state officials to address traffic congestion and safety 
problems at the Route 125/Bal lardvale Street intersection and the Route 125/Andover Street intersection. Ir 
the former instance, the Town has met with area businesses, Andover officials and state officials to 
identify short-term solutions and to prepare for the state's reconstruction of the interchange at Interstati 
93 and Route 125. In the later case the Town has hired Green International Affiliates to design traffic 
signal ization at Andover Street/Route 125. Businesses in the area are donating funds to pay a portion of 
the engineering costs while the State has committed to funding construction of the traffic signals. The 
Board expects to have this intersection project completed in early 1992. 

An agreement was reached between Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) and the Town's of Wilmington, 
North Reading, Lynnfield and Reading to enter into a twenty year contract for the provision of electrical 
power. In exchange for relinquishing our attempts to remove ourselves from RMLD, the Town will receive 
in- I ieu-of -taxes payments from RMLD, the Town will have two representatives on a newly created Advisory 
Board for the purposes of reviewing RMLD's financial and management practices and the Town will be charged 
for streetl ighting on a comparable basis with the Towns of Reading, North Reading and Lynnfield. Due to tM 
persistance of our state legislators and the Town Manager, special legislation was approved by the Great aiH 
General Court in the final hours of their deliberations which allows RMLD to include the in- I ieu-of -taxes 
payments as an expense of operation for ratemaking purposes. The Town will receive over $230,000 from RMLD

Finally, the Board wishes to recognize the following efforts: 

1. Donation of $50,000 from Mediplex Corporation for the purchase of a Town ambulance. 

2. Donation of $800 from the Chamber of Commerce for gifts awarded to Wilmington children who participated 
in Earth Day 1990. 

3. The hard work and dedication of the Wilmington Historical Commission in obtaining nomination of the 
West School on the National Register of Historic Places and their ensuing efforts to hold dedication 
ceremonies at the West School. 

4. The efforts of the Recycling Advisory Committee, the numerous volunteers and residents who assisted the 
Town in achieving its goal of recycling 550 tons of material. 

Certainly their are numerous other efforts throughout Town, led by willing and able volunteers which 
continue without publicity. Suffice it to say that the efforts and contributions of all of the Town

AREA CODE 508 

OFFICE OF THE 658-3311 
TOWN MANAGER 



the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 



Change is inevitable. Oliver Wendell Holmes once noted that, "The greatest thing in this world is 
not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving". We are often measured by our 
ability to adapt to, and to embrace, change. For Wilmington, 1990 has been a year of change. 

We witnessed, as did the rest of New England and most of the country, a significant downturn in 
the economy. Budgets were constrained, programs were cut back and initiatives were delayed. A 
once thriving economy turned sluggish. Wilmington's situation was not unlike many communities 
across the state. Local officials had always been challenged to balance the needs of a diverse 
constituency. This past year however, limited resources exacerbated an already difficult task. 

Residents attending the annual town meeting in April established a reasonable yet ambitious 
agenda. Reasonable because it sought to maintain a level of service to which Wilmington residents 
have become accustomed. Ambitious because the budget adopted to implement the agenda, required 
the passage of an $838,000 override of Proposition 2 1/2. 

Six weeks following the town meeting, Wilmington voters overwhelmingly rejected an override of the 
levy limit. Were taxpayers sending officials a mixed message? To the contrary. The message 
delivered was crystal clear. Citizens demanded quality service and operational efficiency. The 
challenge was to do more with less. In August of 1990, Wilmington met the challenge. The Town's 
governing bodies managed, through open dialogue, to reach consensus on a fiscal plan. Voters 
unanimously adopted a revised town budget which was developed after an accelerated, yet thorough 
examination of all municipal operations. 

Albert Szent Gyorgyi, a Nobel Prize winner in medicine, once offered the following definition of 
creative thinking. He said, "Discovery consists in looking at the same thing as everyone else and 
thinking something different." Wilmington discovered that in time of crisis, creativity enveloped 
by a spirit of cooperation would master the challenge. 

The Town can point to a wide range of accomplishments during the past year. The community's 
housing needs took center stage when the Wilmington Housing Partnership presided over the Town's 
first ever affordable housing lottery. Thirteen families will benefit from the first of several 
housing initiatives. Thanks to the entrepreneurial leadership of the Wilmington Community 
Development Corporation, a unique partnership among private and public entities emerged to 
construct an affordable home at no cost to the Town. 

Wilmington made significant improvements to its property, roadways and infrastructure. Town 
property was upgraded with the completion of a new heating system at Wilmington High School. This 
energy efficient, computerized system completes the energy improvements to the High School which 
had previously included the installation of new windows and underground oil tanks. 

Residents are to be complimented for the patience they displayed during numerous road construction 
projects. There seemed to be a period when you "couldn't get there from here". Repairs to the 
Route 62/Burl ington Avenue bridge were completed in November, two months ahead of schedule. New 
traffic lights were installed at the intersection of Burlington Avenue and Chestnut Street. The 
reconstruction of Aldrich Road, including the construction of sidewalks from Shawsheen Avenue to 
the Billerica line, nears completion. A major expansion to the Wi Idwood Cemetery is 80% 
complete. 

Town officials have been meeting with state engineers and private business leaders in an effort to 
fund the design and construction of traffic improvements and s i gna I i zat i on at Andover Street and 
Route 125. Numerous meetings have been held in furtherance of the state's Route 93/Route 
125/Bal lardvale Street interchange project. Plans are being reviewed in conjunction with road 
construction projects for the Route 38/Main Street corridor, Woburn and Concord Streets 
improvements and signal ization, and the Routes 129/93 interchange.

The annual town meeting adopted a comprehensive acquifer protection zoning by-law in an effort to 
guarantee the protection of Wilmington's groundwater. Voters authorized the purchase, and the 
town subsequently acquired, approximately twelve acres of property from the Regional Health Center 
to provide wellhead protection to the Browns Crossing wellfield. Except for final paving, work is 
completed on the South Main Street sewer project, the construction of which was more than 90% 
funded by the state. The design of the Northeast Sewer Interceptor, a major component of the 
Town's sewer master plan, nears completion. 

Public safety needs continue to command priority attention. A 13% decrease in the motor vehicle 
accident rate was the result of intensive enforcement efforts by the Police Department. The Town 
was one of only thirteen communities recognized statewide by the American Automobile Association 
for its outstanding pedestrian safety record. The Fire Department acquired a new rescue truck and 
five new police cruisers were put into service. 

Despite reduced finances the Town's recreation programs remained in full swing. Alternative 
revenue sources supplemented budget appropriations allowing the Town to offer a wide array of 
recreational and leisure programs. The Town's elderly population is similarly well-served by a 
mix of private and public funding. Computerized public access terminals have replaced the 
traditional public catalog system at the Town library. 

In November of 1990, following the detailed preparation of an official prospectus and bond 
statement, the Town issued $3,890,000 in general obligation bonds. The low interest rate and the 
competitiveness of the bids were positive indications of Wilmington's standing in the financial 
marketplace. Moody's Investment Service describes the Town as having a "satisfactory debt 
position evidenced by a low debt burden and rapid rate of bond retirement". The Town's financial 
policy is to maximize revenues through vigorous collections and to minimize expenditures through 
operational efficiencies. 

The spirit of volunteerism is woven into the fabric of Wilmington. Dedicated residents spend 
countless hours serving on Town boards, commissions and committees. The spirited energy of the 
recycling volunteers, the persistence of the Historical Commission to ensure that Wilmington 
remembers, and the generosity of individuals, such as Anna Low, who donated 19 acres of land to 
the Town for conservation purposes, are but a few examples of the Wilmington volunteer. 

The Town of Wilmington was fortunate to experience the leadership of former Town Manager Reginald 
S.(Buzz) Stapczynski. He brought to the Town a high level of professionalism and he left with a 
litany of accomplishments. We wish Buzz and his family the very best as he embarks on his recent 
challenge in the Town of Andover. 

Margaret Tarantino was appointed to the position of Administrative Assistant replacing 
Margaret Wagstaff who retired early in 1990 following twenty-six years of distinguished service to 
her community. Lynn Duncan was hired as the Town's second Planning Director following the 
resignation of Janet Stearns. Several long time employees of the Town retired including 
Firefighters John Burke and Edward Lyons and Custodians Ernest DiGregorio and Joseph Cagnina. 
Sergeant George Shephard retired from the Police Department after forty years of service and 
Forrest (Brownie) Downs retired as Assistant Superintendent of the Department of Public Works 
nearly thirty-eight years after beginning as a laborer. 

Employees at the Town Hall especially mourn the passing of recently retired custodian Robert 
(Connie) Longo. Connie, ever the gentlemen, was the epitome of service before self. He will be 
missed. 

Special thanks to the Town officials, department heads and employees who have provided me with 
their valuable counsel and assistance during the initial months of my term as Town Manager. 
Wilmington is enriched by a remarkable cadre of dedicated employees, responsible officials and 
energetic volunteers. 

It has been written that "Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal". In 
this era of change the goal remains constant; to provide Wilmington residents with a responsive, 
dependable, compassionate and efficient government. 



Respectfully submitted.

Other Services; 

By virtue of her office, the Town Clerk is clerk to the Board of Registrars. 
In this capacity, she has met with the Board of Registrars on a regular monthly meeting 
night, kept the minutes of same up to date, supervised the Annual Town Census by mail, 
kept the voting list up-to-date, and registered voters during the regular office hours 
of the Town Clerk. She also meets with the Board for special evening sessions to 
register voters and to certify nomination papers for candidates. 

Federal Census of 1990 was off by about 480 from our town count, however, the basis for 
their count (college students away from home, etc.) justifies somewhat the difference. 
BUT, I have a problem with the fact that they do not provide us with any real way to 
justify the difference. Their information, even the addresses are confidential and they 
will not release it. We have only block counts to go by.

Board of Registrars 



In accordance with Section 1, Chapter 3 of the Town By-Laws, meetings of the Board of 
Registrars were held on the second Monday of each month for the registration of voters and to 
conduct business. Under Chapter 616 of the Acts of 1958, these meetings were open to the 
public and press, and it is so posted in the Town Hall. 

The Board held registration sessions as mandated in Mass. General Laws, Chapter 54, section 
64, Chapter 53, sections 43 & 63 and Chapter 51, sections 26, 28, 29 & 30. And all in 
accordance with the Town Charter and Inhabitant By-laws Revised of the Town of Wilmington. 

The Town Clerk attended most of the Town Clerk Conferences in order to keep up with the 
changing election and census laws. 

The 1990 calendar year ended with 10,890 registered voters, of our listed 18,140 inhabitants. 

The Board of Registrars wants to thank all citizens of the town who returned their CENSUS 
forms without delay. A true census is an asset to the town. 



During 1990, the Permanent Building Committee held meetings twice a month. The following is 
a list of projects the Board was involved in: 

The new high school heating system has been completed. Two new boilers, water heater, piping and 
valves were installed. All registers and other appurtenant piping was repaired and/or replaced. In; 
addition, a complete computerized system is in place to balance the heating system and allow it to 
be energy efficient. The Maintenance Staff was intructed in the operation of the new system and 
manuals are being furnished for operation and maintenance procedures. This is the final component 
of the energy improvements to the High School. Previously installed were the new windows and 
underground oil tanks. 

In June, the Committee received the final report of the Police/Fire Feasibility Study prepared by 
Putnam and Associates. A combined facility was recommended to replace the existing stations. In 
addition, a fire substation in North Wilmington was cited to provide the safety needs of that area. 

Design of plan and bid documents for the renovations to the Barrows Auditorium at Wilmington High 
School are on-going. It is expected that bids will be received prior to the 1991 Annual Town 
Meeting. Construction funding will be decided at that time. 

o The Permanent Building Committee welcomed new members Joseph Castronovo and Michael Oolan to the

these two firefighters for 27 years of faithful and dedicated service to the Town of Wilmington. Appointed 
to the Fire Department, Andrew McRobb. 

The Fire Alarm division, under the direction of Lieutenant Paul Welch, inspected and tested all boxes. All 
necessary repairs were made to the system after several motor vehicle accidents. There were A5 
changeovers. Back-up batteries for the digitized Fire Alarm board were replaced. Approximately one mile 
rual "C" wire was changed over to the new figure eight wire. Two street boxes were removed from service and 
two boxes were added at new locations. Five new master boxes were added. One circuit was added to the Fire 
Alarm board.

Police Department 



In accordance with the By-Laws of the Town of Wilmington, I hereby respectfully submit the Annual Report or 
the activities of the Wilmington Police Department for the year of 1990. 

The enclosed statistical report represents the total for all crimes, complaints and incidents reported 
during the year 1990; and, for the most part the corresponding enforcement efforts of the Wilmington Police 
Department. During 1990 the total number of complaints and incidents reported to the police department 
increased slighty from 12,204 incidents in 1989 to 12,330 during 1990. For the most part these increases 
were spread throughout the various crime categories and service related incidents. However, a number of th| 
serious crime categories decreased significantly during 1990. Brealcing and Entering into homes and 
buildings decreased by 35% from 199 incidents in 1989 to 129 during 1990. Armed robberies decreased by 33)! 
from 9 incidents during 1989 to 6 during 1990. Totals for Assaults and Batteries increased by 1 from 94 ir 

1989 to 95 in 1990. Motor vehicles stolen in Wilmington increased by 46X from 52 in 1989 to 76 in 1990. 

Motor vehicle accidents and traffic congestion continue to be a serious community problem; however, during 

1990 the Police Department experienced a 13X decrease in the motor vehicle accident rate. During 1990 mote 
vehicle accidents decreased by 109 accidents from 845 accidents in 1989 to 736 during 1990. This is the 
lowest accident rate since 1976 when Wilmington experienced 536 accidents. 

The Police Department continued to place a high priority on the enforcement of motor vehicle violations 
during 1990. During 1990 the department cited 5,606 motor vehicle violations, this represents a decrease o 
28% from the violations cited during 1989. The following are the totals for some of the major areas of 
concern; speeding violations 3,145; operators license violations 381; unregistered and uninsured 159; and, ; 
miscellaneous violations 1,645. Arrest for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol were 
decreased by 28% from 108 in 1989 to 80 during 1990. 

Arrest for crimes other than motor vehicle offenses during 1990 totaled 665. During 1990 the Police 
Department continued to place a high priority on alcohol and drug related offenses. As a result, arrest fo 
liquor law violations totaled 287 and there was a total of 28 narcotics arrests during 1990. In addition t 
motor vehicle and other criminal arrests, the department placed a total of 172 persons under Protective 
Custody. A total of 1,204 persons were taken into custody by the police department during 1990. As a 
result of the enforcement efforts of the department. The fine monies returned to the Town of Wilmington 
from the Woburn District Court during 1990 totaled $320,767. ' 

The department makes note of personnel changes during 1990. During 1990 Sgt. George E. Shepard retired fro( 
the Police Department after 40 years of service. His wit and expertise as a police officer and investigate^ 
will be greatly missed. We all wish George health and happiness in his retirement. Officer Robert H. ' 
Spencer was promoted to the rank of sergeant. Officers David A. Sugrue and Louis Martignetti were appointei 
to the department and are currently in training at the Police Academy. ; 

Considering the tremendous turnover in the police department's personnel during the past few years, the 
following Departmental Roster is being provided: ;

Emergency Management 



The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency (UEMA) is the equivalent of the Civil Defense Agency for the Town 
of Wilmington. We are housed in the basement of the Old Town Hall located at 219 Middlesex Avenue (Route 62 
across from the Congregational Church). The goal of our agency is to be of service to the citizens of 
Wilmington whenever possible. Our expertise at present lies in the ability to provide needed communications 
in the form of radio, telephone, and packet capabilities. We have been privileged to assist at check points 
for the walk-a-thon and assist the police department on Halloween for the past few years. 

The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency is fortunate to have two repeaters. Our main repeater is the 440 
mhz repeater which is located at the base of the N.Y.N.E.X. tower located at the intersection of Route 129 
and Route 38 and its frequency is 449.475. Our secondary repeater is the 220 mhz repeater which is located 
on the water tower on Hillside Way and its frequency is 224.160. 

The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency is also fortunate to have a dive team with four fully equipped 
personnel. The duties of the dive team at present are limited to recovery only and not emergency rescue. 

The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency has limited shelter equipment in the form of sixty-five (65) Army 
style folding cots and seventy (70) medium weight blankets. 

The success of our Agency is attributable to the dedication of its members who donate hundreds of hours per 
year and you, the taxpayer, for the foresight to supply the funding needed to have an active agency staffed 
and equipped in the event of any emergency. 

As was reported to you last year, the Emergency Management Agency's budget was reduced by more than 50%. 
This means that you, the taxpayer, are now receiving all of these ongoing as well as future services for the 
coming year at the low price of just over five thousand dollars. This in itself should assure you that the 
Wilmington Emergency Management Agency gives you the very best return for the least dollars spent and we ask 
for your support now and in the future.

Planning Board 



During 1990, the Planning Board lost its Planning Director, Janet R. Stearns, who left in June. Alma L. < 
D'Antonio, Senior Clerk, continued to staff the Planning Board Office. Throughout this year the Planning 
Board has also received technical assistance from Town Engineer, Harold R. Gillam. Lynn Duncan was hired e 
Planning Director beginning January, 1991. Richard A. Longo filled the vacancy on the Planning Board 
created by the expiration of the term of Nancy A. Stouffer. 



SUBDIVISION CONTROL; 

Under the authority vested in the Planning Board of the Town of Wilmington by Section 81-Q of Chapter 41 of^ 
the General Laws, the Board reviewed the following subdivision plans: i 

Andover Heights Definitive Plan - application for submission of proposed 59 lot residential 
subdivision approved with conditions. 

Cushing Estates Definitive Plan - application for submission of proposed 11 lot residential 
subdivision approved with conditions. 



Upton Technology Park Preliminary Plan - application for submission of proposed 3 lot industrial 
subdivision was reviewed. 



Ainsworth Road Definitive Plan - application for submission of proposed 6 lot industrial subdivision 
- decision pending. 

Upton Technology Park Definitive Plan - application for submission of 3 lot industrial subdivision 
was approved with conditions. 



The Planning Board collected a total of $9,870.86 in filing fees in the 1990 calendar year, with these fees 
being turned over to the General Fund Account. 

Of the thirty-four (34) plans believed not to require approval that were submitted in 1990: The Planning 
Board found that 25 plans did not require approval under the Subdivision Control Law and therefore were 
endorsed; 7 plans were found to require approval and therefore were denied for cause; 1 plan was endorsed b 
the Town Clerk; 1 plan was received without action. 

ZONING: 



In accordance with M.G.L. ch. 40A, the Planning Board held required statutory public hearings on proposed

Redevelopment Authority 



In 1990 the Uilmington Redevelopment Authority initiated preliminary planning activities for roadway and 
intersection improvement projects for the Route 38/129 area between the Route 62 intersection and the 
Tewksbury town line. These activities included traffic counts, analysis, and preparation of a preliminary 
treatment proposal to be incorporated in a presentation to the Selectmen early in 1991, in connection with 
recommendation to apply for a Public Works Economic Development Grant. 

Additionally, the Authority has conducted a series of traffic count studies during 1990 relating to the 
closing of the Route 62 bridge and intersection during and after the short-term bridge repair closing. A 
report will be provided early in 1991 indicating the impact of re-routing of traffic during the short-term 
closing, and recommendations for dealing with the anticipated long-term closing of the intersection during 
the construction of the proposed permanent bridge replacement project. 

Ms. Patricia Duggan was appointed by the Commonwealth to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of the 
Governor's appointee, C. Nicki Johnson. 

The officers of the Authority are as follows: Jay Donovan, Chairman; Vaughn Surprenant, Vice Chairman; 
Carl A. Backman, Jr., Treasurer and Sidney Kaizer, Assistant Treasurer. 

In 1991, the Authority will continue to work with the Massachusetts Department of Public Works to coordinat 
planning and design activities for the Route 62 bridge replacement and intersection projects. It is 
anticipated that the Authority will begin the 25X design process in 1991. 

Besides the work undertaken on the Town Center Project, the Town of Uilmington continues to reap the 
benefits of its investment in the Jewel Industrial Park more than 20 years ago. At the end of 1990, there 
were 9 businesses operating in Jewel Park employing a total of 970 workers. Based upon Fiscal Year 1990 
data provided by the Assessor's Office, the total assessed value of the park was $20,222,900 and the annual 
tax revenue to the Town of Wilmington totalled $334,486.76. 



Recycling Advisory Committee 



The Wilmington Recycling Advisory Committee (WRAC) just completed its first full year of operation for the 
Wilmington community. We reached our goal of 550 tons with a savings of $34,286. The Recycling Advisory 
Committee is confident that the goal for next year of 800 tons can be achieved with the cooperation of all 
Wilmington residents. The state's ambitious task of requiring municipalities, to recycle and compost 40X 
our waste by the year 2000, will be a challenge to all communities. The WRAC believes that we are in a ve 
favorable position to comply with any state mandated recycling programs. The following is a list of some 
our accomplishments this past year and our goals for 1991: 

1. The redesign of the Drop-Off Center to accommodate the enormous quantities of recycled materials and 
facilitate the flow of residents making use of the site. 

2. The Second Annual Leaf Pick-Up drive collected 307 tons of leaves; an increase of 10X over the previo 
year. Having residents place their leaves at the curb on the same day as their trash made it much 
easier and more convenient for both residents and the Town. The leaves collected in the fall of 1989 
have now been fully composted and are available for the residents free of charge. 

3. Wilmington celebrated Earth Day 1990 by hosting a public fair in the High School cafeteria. Awards were 
presented to students of all ages who creatively expressed what Earth Day represented to them. The WRAC 
wishes to thank the Wilmington School system and PAC members, along with the Wilmington Chamber of 
Commerce who assisted in making Earth Day in Wilmington a success. 

4. One of the goals of our committee is to reach as many Uilmington residents as possible, and inform them 
of our recycling efforts. We have pursued this through a variety of media outlets. A flyer was placed 
in all tax bills listing what items are accepted at the Drop-off site and the location of the center. 
Free ads have been published by the Town Crier along with many Press Releases. We published a quarterly 
newsletter that is sent to all volunteers informing them of any relevant information regarding the 
Town's recycling program. Ackerly Advertising has donated a billboard for the committee to use. Along 
with the public service announcements aired on the Uilmington access station, we feel the committee is 
well on its way to making all Uilmington residents aware of the opportunity for and importance of 
recycling. 



-28- 



Committee members thank Bob Palmer, O.P.W. Director and Jeff Hull, Assistant Town Manager for their help and 
support and to Town Manager Michael Caira and the Board of Selectmen for their confidence in our efforts to 
serve Wilmington residents. 

Last, but not least, a special thank you goes to all those who volunteer their time on Saturdays to work and 
guide residents through the Drop-Off site. Without their dedication the Wilmington Recycling Drop-Off 
Center could not continue. In closing, the conmittee would like to invite those who have not already made 
use of the Recycling Center to do so, on any Saturday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m., at 
Old Main Street in South Wilmington. The drop-off center accepts glass (green, brown, clear) newspaper, 
corrugated cardboard, plastic milk jugs, plastic water jugs, aluminum, returnable cans and bottles and 
leaves. Each ton of material recycled saves the Town $63.00. 



The Board of Health consists of three members appointed by the Town Manager for three year terms. Serving 
on the Board throughout 1990 were: Dr. James Ficociello, D.D.S., One Fletcher Lane; Mr. Joseph Paglia, 101 
Nichols Street; Mr. Milton Calder, 14 Hobson Avenue. The Director of Public Health is Gregory P. 
Erickson R.S., C.H.O., and the Public Health Nurse is Ann FitzGerald. The Animal Control Officer is 
Ellen Davis. The secretarial staff (which is shared with the Building Commissioner) consists of Joan Goulet 
and Toni LaRivee. In addition, Michael Saraco and Joseph Tabbi have been contracted as needed to conduct 
field inspections required on a part-time basis. 

One of the goals for this year was to continue to implement the ticketing system for violations of health 
regulations in the Town of Wilmington. This has been done and the ticketing system is now part of the 
operating procedure of the Board of Health. Total of fines collected in 1990 using this system was $2,420. 

The annual Rabies Clinic was held at the Department of Public Works on Andover Street. 

The Public Health Nursing Service of the Board of Health for communicable disease programs included a 
townwide flu clinic, which was held on October 10, 1990 evening hours 4-8 p.m., total number of injections 
administered was 292. The total of flu injections for the year 1990 was 829 administered at clinics for the 
public, to seniors, at Wilmington Woods Nursing Home. Twenty eight home visits were made for flu 
injections, and twenty-five persons received Pneumovax 23 vaccine. 

Hepatitis B vaccinations given to the police and fire personnel totaled 16. One hundred and fifty-five 
immunizations were administered including T.D., oral Polio, O.P.T., M.M.R.. Wilmington High School seniors 
received T.D. boosters. Re- immunizations for measles, mumps, rubella for 6th grade and college entrance 
students has placed a premium on free state M.M.R. vaccine. Four cases of pertussis (Whooping Cough) were 
investigated in November. 

Public Health home visits for injections and health care have increased to 357 this year. 

Screening programs offered were Mammography in March, Hypertension in May and Glaucoma in October. Blood 
Cholesterol screening is offered all year. Two hundred fifty-two clients have participated in the Cardiac 
Risk Assessment Program. Diabetic screening is also on-going with the portable Accu-Check II glucometer, 
168 persons were tested. One hundred fifty-four visits were made for Mantoux (T.B.) skin tests. 

Proof of blood lead testing (an indication of poisoning from lead paint) is now required for entry into 
kindergarten, 12 children have been tested. 

The Board of Health sponsored a nutrition lecture given by Ms. Kathleen Petri I lo, R.D. for heart health in 

February. The Health Fair was held May 5th, assisted by Winchester Hospital Community Education Department 

A.I.M., Aids Education Committee of Wilmington, American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, V.N. A., 

M.E., Jazzercise, Wilmington Senior Dance Team, Knights of Columbus, Wilmington Family Counseling, 

Wilmington School Nurses and the Textron occupational health nurses. Foot examination was given by 
Dr. Kenneth Leavitt and the eye examination was given by Dr. Phillip Gendleman.

Historical Commission 



I 



In celebration of the induction of the West Schoolhouse into the National Register of Historic Places, a 
dedication ceremony was held on September 8, 1990. 

The ceremony opened with fife and drum selections performed by members of the Wilmington Minutemen Company. 
Distinguished guests participating in the ceremony included Rep. James R. Miceli, Rep. Augusto F. Grace, 
Elsa Fitzgerald representing the Massachusetts Historical Commission, Mark T. Haldane, Michael A. Caira, 
Or. Shirley F. Callan, William J. Fay, Jr., Reginald S. Stapczynski and Captain Larz Neilson. Letters of 
congratulations were received from Vice President Quayle, the Department of Education and Department of the 
Interior, Washington, D.C., Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Sen. John F. Kerry and former Speaker of the House of 
Representatives, Tip O'Neill. A flag which flew over the U.S. Capitol was presented from the office of U.S 
Rep. Edward Markey. State Rep. James Miceli presented a flag which flew over our State Capitol. 

Following the ceremony, a reception was held inside the West School through the generosity of many local 
businessmen. We wish to extend a special thanks to Assistant Town Manager Jeff Hull, Adele Passmore, 
Judi Johnston and the Wilmington Garden Club and the many Town departments who helped to make this 
celebration a success. 

The Wilmington Historical Commission presented to the Town, through the Board of Selectmen, the flag which 
flew over the Capitol in Washington, D.C. in honor of the dedication of the West Schoolhouse. 

Under the induction of the First Period Houses, Thematic Resource Area, the Buck House at 216 Wildwood 
Street has also been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

The Commission is in the process of surveying the possibility of the creation of the National Historic 
District in the old Centre Village area. 

We continue to strive for the protection and preservation of historic properties in the Town. We have been 
working continuously with Town and private individuals to preserve the Wilmington Town Pound (1814) and 
Scalekeepers Building (1830), both located on Glen Road. 

Our historical plaque program is continuing to recognize historical properties throughout the Town. 

The Harnden Tavern Open House program continues on the first Sunday of each month. Informative historical 
tours are offered by our tenants. Josh and Lisa Winant. Through the efforts of the Friends of the Harnden 
Tavern, many more articles have been purchased and are on display. The Friends held a successful Strawber 
Festival, Harvest Festival/Quilt Show and Christmas Social. 

Memberships in the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Historic Massachusetts have been renewed. 

The Wilmington Historical Commission wishes to thank the many Town Departments which have assisted us 
throughout 1990 in the preservation and maintenance of Wilmington's historic buildings; especially the 
Col. Joshua Harnden Tavern and its Carriage House and the old West Schoolhouse. 

The Commission meets on the second Monday of the month at the Town Hall, Room 4 at 7:30 p.m. 



Carter Lecture Fund 



In the Herbert C. Barrows Auditorium on Thursday, April 26, 1990, at 8:15 p.m., Mr. Billy Kelly, a comedian,

lovely and adventurous travelogues, to the known and to the unknown! 



Please look for the program- information posted in your stores, churches, and banks; the Carter programs are 
free for those who wish to attend and leave the audience with something new to take home, some wonderful 
memories of a group, of tricks, of laughter, or of a far-off land you've visited, would like to visit, or 
just discover by attending a special evening!

Recreation Department 



Wilmington's Recreation Department, in its 20th year with a full time Director, continued to meet new 
challenges while delivering a wide array of leisure opportunities for the citizens of Uilmington. 

Although our department is relatively small, with only two full time employees, it represents the second 
largest industry in the nation. In fact, Americans spend about 12 percent of their personal income on 
recreation. 

The Recreation Commission consists of five volunteer citizens appointed by the Town Manager. This board 
functions in a policy making and advisory capacity to the Director. 

The Recreation Commission and Director keep in mind the following departmental objectives as they plan and 
conduct recreation programs throughout the year: 

To provide opportunities for self expression. 
To develop a sense of personal worth. 

To provide activities that allow for personal achievement and accomplishment 
To provide activities that are fun and enjoyable. 

To provide physical activities which are new and different, offering a certain amount of challenge to 
participants. 

To teach skills in various activities that will have carry-over value in later life. 
To provide a healthful and diversified program of recreation activities in an 
attempt to meet the needs and interests of the people being served. 

Our total funding comes from a variety of sources. User fees and donations heavily supplement the town 
funded budget which was decimated by the effects of Prop. 2 1/2 many years ago. Volunteers always play a 
key role in providing two dollars worth of service for every dollar spent. We also receive much help from 
local clubs and organizations. Some of these invaluable contributors are: Rotary, Lions Club, Kiwanis 
Club, Chamber of Commerce, Town Employees Association, Tewksbury-Wi Imington Elks, Police Association, Pop 
Warner, Council on Arts, July 4th Committee, Custodial Union, Sons of Italy, G.E. Employees Good Neighbor 
Fund, Woburn District Court, Analog Devices, Leavitts Insurance, Michael's Place, Century 21, Lockhart 
Machine Co., Polymer Tech, Ametek, Camp Forty Acres, Special Needs PAC, Masonic Lodge, MassBank, Poloroid, 
Stelio's Restaurant, Action Glass, F & R Auto Supply, Textron Defense System, Ounkin Donuts of Wilmington 
and Burlington, Wilmington Cold Storage, On Stage Video, Wildside Sports, McDonalds, Burger King, Fort 
Howard, Rocco's, Auxiliary Police and Whitney Barrel. Our summer day camp for special needs kids is SOX 
reimburseable from the Commonwealth. 

The Recreation Department is always involved, in varying degrees, with many recreation oriented projects anc 
groups. In this nature we serve as a quasi -consul t ing agency. The Director also serves on committees as 
directed by the Town Manager. We also loan equipment to families and groups of all types for various 
functions. We program use of the Shawsheen Tech Pool for scout and other groups. 

Our basic programs are: Santa's Workshop, Horribles Parade, Special Kids Christmas Party, Christmas 
shopping in New York City, spring trip to New York City, Basketball League, Men's Basketball, Men's Gym, 
Swimming Lessons, Swim-A-Cross, CPR, First Aid, Punt, Pass & Kick Contest, Gymnastics, Ladies Fitness, 
Cinema Discounts, Other Commercial Recreation Enterprise Discount Coupons, Sesame Street Live at the Bostc 
Garden, Special Needs Gym Program, Boat Cruise to Provi ncetown, Florida Discounts, T-Ball, Easter Egg Hunt 
Circus trip to Boston Garden, Bruins tickets. Summer Playground, Tiny Tots, Special Needs Day Camp, Public 
Beach Lifeguard Supervision, Canoe Rental and Clinic, Crane's Beach Day, Tennis Lessons, Concerts on the 
Common, Red Sox Trips, Sport Clinics, Fishing Derby, Co-ed Volley Ball, Disney on Ice Trip, Free loan of 
Fishing, Canoeing, Soccer, Aerobics and Hawaii VCR Tapes, Police Association Beach Day, Easter Coloring 
Contest, Sale of Entertainment Discount Books, Special Needs trips to the Shriners Rodeo and Circus, Sale of 
Greater Boston Discount Books, Ballroom Dancing Lessons, Atlantic City Trip, Karate, Kinderkicks, Aquacize, 
Newport Mansion Trip and Junior Basketball. 

Other groups that offer leisure type programs in Wilmington are: Little League, Council on Aging, Pony 
League, Youth Hockey, Pop Warner, Figure Skating Club, Men's Softball, Square Dancing, Youth Soccer, Tennis 
Club, July 4th Committee, Community Schools, Council for the Arts, Scouts, and Campfire. Schools and 
churches round out the active recreation picture. 

There is an obvious lack of commercial recreation facilities in Wilmington such as bowling centers and movie 
theatres. The Town also lacks youth serving agencies such as YMCA's, YWCA's, Boys and Girls Clubs. The 
addition of the new rink is a great plus. This void stresses the importance for town support of this 
departments various leisure oriented programs.

entire year was $9,645.74. 

The total expended by the Veterans Administration directly to an approximate veteran population of 2,100 in 
Wilmington was $1,476,492.00 for benefits for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1990, representing the amount 
of tax dollars not required to be expended for support of those, who because of circumstances, find it 
necessary to apply for aid. 

The appropriation for 1990 and six months of 1991 was $5,000.00 as voted at the Annual Town Meeting, with no 
balance forwarded for the first six months of 1991. 



The annual report of the Memorial Library with its accompanying compilation of statistics for 1990 is 
submitted herewith: 

1990 was preoccupied with concern over adequate financial support and maintenance of minimum standards of 
public library service. The positive actions at the Special Town Meeting held on August 27, 1990, assured 
continued support and adherence to acceptable standards. 

Without fanfare, the Memorial Library provided basic access to educational, informational and recreational 
books and library materials. 

The professional staff provided reference and reader services to adults and children, and furnished access 
to the wide spectrum of materials available within the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium and beyond its 
borders. The Consortium reported Wilmington to be the sixth most active out of the twenty-three 
participating communities. The Reference Department requested over one thousand items from other libraries, 
and received more than thirteen hundred requests from other institutions. 

The Children's Librarian reports a heavy, steady after school use of the library, and an increase of 30% in 
departmental reference figures over 1989. Nearly 800 children actively participated in the "Yummer Summer" 
reading program, reading a total approaching 22,000 books, or an average of 27 each! 1990 was the ninth 
consecutive year that the public schools and the library have cooperated to encourage summer reading. 
Circulation activity within the Children's Department accounts for 57X of the total for 1990. 

The people at the circulation desks were both efficient and courteous on "the front lines" helping their 
daily clientele of seniors, adults, and children. The library's positive reputation in town is in no small 
measure owed to them. 

The Technical Services Department, despite a full time professional vacancy, closed the traditional public 
catalog and provided a smooth transition for the public to use the computerized public access terminals. 
The need for maintaining two cataloging systems came to an end in 1990. Acceptance of change is frequently 
difficult, but the public has accepted this new development. Most agree that the technology is an 
improvement in locating books and information. Good humor has been evident throughout this learning process.

The Library is more than its books and materials, more than its statistical measurements, and more than i 
finances. Susan MacDonald, Assistant Children's Librarian, is in her twenty-first year of service to the 
town; Philip U. Meriam, Director, and Sarah Rueter, Children's Services Librarian, are in their twentieth 
year; and, Barbara White, Circulation Librarian, is in her eighteenth year of service. The accompl i shmen 
of 1990 are due to the efforts of the entire staff. 

The Director gratefully acknowledges the support of the Board of Trustees, the support and confidence of 
Town Manager and Finance Committee, and the Town. Adequate financial support and continued adherence to 
acceptable standards will continue to be required during 1991.

Conservation Commission 



1990 was a very busy and productive year for the Conservation Commission. The Commission welcomed a new 
member in 1990, William McKinnon, whose enthusiasm and conservation ethics complements the Commission. In 
July 1990, the Conservation Commission said good-bye with regret to a member. Sheila Goldfield, whose 
service and dedication was deeply appreciated. 

The Commission also experienced several changes in staff during 1990. During March 1990, in anticipation 
proposed budget cuts, Donald Penney, The Commission's Conservation Ranger resigned. In late May, 1990, 
Ginny Lemos, Conservation Secretary also resigned in anticipation of proposed budget cuts. The Commission 
gratefully appreciates the enthusiasm, commitment and dedication shown by Mr. Penny and Mrs. Lemos during 
their tenure with the Town's Conservation Department. 

Annual Town Meeting 1990 brought budget cuts and constraints to the Conservation Commission with the loss 
the Conservation Ranger postion and line-item cutbacks. 

Judi Johnston joined the Commission's staff in July, 1990 as Conservation Secretary. 

During 1990, in pursuit of the Commission's goal of educational outreach, the Conservation Administrator 
organized a Wetlands Forum for the citizens in February, sponsored by the Wilmington Garden Club and 
co-sponsored by the Wilmington Conservation Commission, Wilmington Recycling Committee and the Wilmington 
League of Women Voters, with speakers from D.E.P., The Trustees of Reservations and The Wilmington 
Conservation Commission. In May 1990, the Conservation Administrator held a mini -workshop in Aquatic 
Project WILD, a supplemental environmental education wildlife curriculum, at the Shawsheen School in 
Wilmington for teachers from K-12. 

The Commission members continued to actively pursue Commission goals in many areas. The Commission 
carefully reviewed and considered many town-owned land parcels for possible transfer to the Conservation 
Commission. The Boiler-plate Subcommittee also worked very hard to complete revisions of the Commission's 
boiler-plate conditions for wetlands permits. 

The Conservation staff and board members actively served and assisted on many Town projects in 1990, 
including but not limited, to the Recycling Committee, Local Emergency Planning Committee, Town-owned Land 
Study, Acqui f er/Groundwater Protection Study/Proposed By-Law and the Community Development Task Force. 

Conservation Intern/Ranger, Donald Penney completed many projects on several parcels of Conservation land 
Wilmington. Signs, trails and footbridges constructed by Mr. Penney welcome visitors to our Conservation 
properties. 

The Commission office is open to the public in the Town Hall, Room 6, weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 
The office is staffed by full-time Conservation Administrator, Eileen Flaherty Chabot and part-time 
Secretary, Judi Johnston. The Conservation Commission invites the public to attend its meetings which are 
held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month in Room 9 at the Town Hall. 

The Conservation Commission and its staff gratefully acknowledges the support and cooperative efforts 
exhibited by the Selectmen, the Town Manager and all of the Town Departments and Boards this year. 

The Commission would also like to extend its deepest appreciation and special thanks to Mrs. Anna Low for 
the donation of 19 acres of land to the Town for conservation purposes. 

The preservation of natural resources in Wilmington remains a major priority of the Conservation 
Commission. All who are interested in making a contribution to land preservation in Wilmington via land 
donations are urged to contact the Commission office at any time. 

Wetlands protection and open space preservation goals can be fully achieved only with the assistance and 
cooperation of Wilmington's citizens. 

The Conservation Commission wishes to thank the community and residents for their support throughout the

Council on Aging 



The Council on Aging under the leadership of Chairman Henry Latta and members Frank Ratto, Mae Cannizaro, 
Mary Cunningham, Joseph Filipowicz, Charles Gilbert, Marilyn Gilbert, Elaine Hachey, Grace Kirkland, Marilyn 
McCarthy, Louise Miceli and Coordinator Edith Cunningham welcomed many new residents reaching the age of 
sixty, as did Councils on Aging throughout the country. To continue to meet the needs of all our seniors, 
those entering the center, and those seniors who had been active and now have been added to our shut-in 
list, we have made some changes at the Buzzell Senior Citizen Center. The room downstairs used for our Shop 
and Ceramic classes was completely renovated. Ceiling, walls and floor were repaired and painted, new 
lights, new banisters and a large wall fan installed to keep the air clean while the seniors are working in 
the classes. 

A large fan was installed into the wall of the Game Room to alleviate some of the smoke buildup. 

The outside of the building was painted, and the parking lot was marked up for the protection of those 
entering and leaving the center. 

A new program was implemented for seniors who enjoy singing. With the volunteer services of three piano 
players and a guitar player, a Sing-a-Long is held on Tuesday afternoon, with good participation. 

This year we received 7,047 telephone calls for many services and general information. 

Services rendered through the Coucil on Aging to the elders in 1990 were: 

Transportation to medical and other elderly related travel appointments 
Meals on Wheels to shut ins 
Meals served at the congregated lunch site 
Respite care services given to handicapped seniors 

Special holiday dinners to our homebound donated by the Analog Device Corp. 

and the Kiwanis Club 
Applications for fuel, oil burners and weatherization 
Total participation in all activity programs 
Kitchen socialization throughout the year 
Game room participation 

To the following we extend our thanks for funds, enabling us to deliver the above services: 

The taxpayers for approving our budget 

Community Teamwork, Inc. for accepting applications for fuel, oil burners and weatherization 
Minuteman Home Care for homemakers, daycare, protective services and transportation to 

hospitals outside our travel limit 
Department of Elder Affairs Grant used for our Outreach Organizer 
H. B. Fuller Company for painting the house of a disable senior living alone 
Mystic Valley Mental Health services for depression and addiction abuse 
Northeast Visiting Nurse Association - nursing services 

Senator Buell and Representative Miceli for help working with State Agencies 
Diamond Crystal Salt for all napkins and sugar used at the Center 

Hampshire Press for donating the printing of all our brochures, get-well cards and chance 

books for the Senior Fair 
Maple Meadow Gardens for the donation of a Christmas Tree every year 

The Farmer and the Dell for their daily donation of pastry used every day at the center 
The Town Manager for his help and guidance 

To the following clubs we thank for their donations to the senior citizens: 

Kiwanis Club for their generous monthly donation to the whist, the Annual Shut-in Dinner and their 

Thanksgiving and Christmas donations of fuel and food for seniors in need 
Rotary Club for their monthly food gift certificate and for buying a Tub-Lift-Seat for a disabled 

couple living alone 

Lions Club for their Annual Senior Citizen Dinner Dance and monthly food gift certificate 
Tewksbury/Wi Imington Elks for their Annual Thanksgiving Dinner Dance. 
To all the merchants who contributed gifts for the Fair chance book. 

The seniors for their thousands of volunteer hours donated in visiting seniors in their homes, 
hospitals and nursing homes. Instructing activity programs, making articles and selling them 
at the Fair to earn enough money to buy equipment for the kitchen and office, and to pay for 
material used in our activity programs to keep these programs free to the seniors. Their sacrifice 
also paid for three monthly therapeutic socials. 

To all who helped in any way in making the lives of the elderly reisdents of Wilmington more meaningful in 
1990 we are very grateful.

Council for the Arts 



In 1990 the Wilmington Council for the Arts experienced a period of gratifying accomplishment despite severe 
financial cutbacks. A downturn in both national and local economies necessitated these reductions. 



However, the Council adjusted its programs and grants were given; scholarships awarded; ARTSBUS trips 
provided; art exhibitions and demonstrations and lectures were presented; and most rewarding of all were the 
art classes sponsored by the Council where professional instruction is provided by accomplished teachers for 
a nominal fee. It is in these classes that a wonderful new dimension is realized by many who have never had 
the opportunity to learn the technical skills of actual hands-on-painting. For others it provides and 
extension to already acquired talents. 

The Massachusetts Arts Lottery (now known as the Massachusetts Cultural Council) allocates funds whereby the 
local council may provide grants and scholarships to eligible applicants. In the spring four scholarships, 
each in the amount of $475, were awarded to the following: Jodi Demos, Antonio Vitale, Taunia Soderquist 
and Laura Desmond. A scholarship for $200 was given to Derek Buzzotta. Three PASS (Performings Arts 
Sudents Series) grants were awarded to those teachers who applied. This afforded 215 students from the 
Shawsheen and Wildwood Street schools the opportunity to view "The Velveteen Rabbit" and "Dinosaur Rock" 
presented at the North Shore Music Theater. The Tenth Annual Art Exhibition by the Arts Council was held 
this year on Saturday, June 30 and on Sunday, July 1, 1990. Because of the success of exhibitions in 
previous years, it was agreed to hold this exhibition over two days. Over 100 works were shown and 
approximately 300 persons attended. The three judges were the following artists: 

Elva S. Proctor of Milton, award-winning artist in oils and watercolor. Mrs. Proctor was one of the 
three artists who judged the first WCA art show in 1981, she returned this year for its 10th anniversary. 

Fran Foy . well know Reading watercolor i st , member of the Copley Society of Boston. 

Wi 1 1 jam F . Prett i . President of the Reading Art Association. 

The John D. Brooks award went to Evelyn Andersen for her watercolor, "At the 8th Tee". Ms. Andersen was a 
teacher of art in the Wilmington schools for a number of years. The Popular Vote was won by Patricia 
Sullivan and First Prize in watercolor went to Elaine Bradley. Lorraine DeGroot-Stevens won First Prize in 
oil. Other winners in various categories were: Diana Pasquariel lo, Phoebe King, Mary Saija, Leda Sullivan, 
Dorothy Richards, Margaret Brooks, Marguerite McKeever, Jane Robinson, Dora Hirtle, Joan Ward, William 
Frost, Jr. and Charlotte McCain. In Photography, prizes went to Dorothy Riddle, Ray Capodanno and John 
Orner. Merit awards in the student category were won by Barbara Groom and Helen Doherty. 

The Special Exhibition of the paintings of Stephen S. Greco, the 1989 recipient of a grant from the 
Massachusetts Arts Lottery Council as administered by the Wilmington Council for the Arts, was of tremendous 
interest. 



-61- 



Again in 1990, art lessons at the Center under the sponsorship of the Arts Council were very successful, a 
welcome and popular innovation was an afternoon course in watercolor with Elaine Bradley as teacher. Only 
small fee is charged for all the art classes, and many have derived a great satisfaction from learning to 
paint. 

A watercolor demonstration by Bernard Gerstner, the well-known Gloucester painter, and a demonstration in 
portrait painting in oil by Helen Van Uyk, nationally-known artist, teacher, lecturer and TV personality, 
provided evenings of delightful enjoyment for the many who attended their shows. 

In keeping with the Monet in the 90's Exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts the Wilmington Council for the 
Arts presented Mrs. Martha Wright of the museum staff in a slide lecture on the Monet exhibition. This wa 
extremely well attended and particularly enjoyed by those who participated in the ARTBUS trip a week later 
to the museum to view the Monet exhibition. Mrs. Wright again lectured at the Center on the MFA exhibitic 
entitled COURTLY SPLENDOR, which celebrated the enthronement of Emperor Akhito and the centennial of the 
museum's Asiatic Department. As ever the ARTBUS trips proved extremely popular. In May, a trip was made 
the MFA to see ART IN BLOOM, a magnificent display of floral arrangements created by members of New Englar 
garden clubs. A bus trip was sponsored in September to "Art Newbury" in which all galleries on Newbury 
Street in Boston are open to the public. Members were able to see the new gallery on Newbury Street owned 
by one of its members, Mr. Bruce Jope. 

In March, a program entitled "A Nostalgic and Humorous Visit with Norman Rockwell" was enjoyable, and in 
April Mr. Stephen Boodakian presented an interesting program on Oriental rugs - "Mosaics in Wool". During 
the past year the Council was fortunate to add to its permanent art collection an Andrea Peter's oil and a 
watercolor by Bernard Gerstner. Also acquired were two collages of Charlotte McCain. On loan by Elizabeth 
White is an Evelyn Andersen landscape. A new picture-hanging system has been installed which provides 
flexibility in hanging and eliminating potential damage to the walls. 

The Wilmington Council for the Arts is proud to claim as a fellow-member Daniel Ballou who has an 
outstanding exhibition in watercolor of Wilmington's six churches. These lovely works are being shown at 
the Shawmut Bank located at DeMoulas Plaza. They are: the Congregational Church in Wilmington, the First 
Baptist Church, the United Methodist Church, St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church and the two Roman Catholic 
churches - St. Thomas of Villanova and St. Dorothy's located at Silver Lake. 

Again under the able direction of Mr. Roger J. Lessard, Superintendent of Public Buildings, repairs were 
made to the building. A new tile floor was laid throughout the Center and the ceiling in the gallery was 
repaired. The Council very much appreciates the efficient and excellent work of Mr. Lessard and his workers. 

Officers of the Council for the Arts are: Elizabeth White, Chairperson; Edith Michelson, Vice Chairperson; 
Anne Buzzell, Treasurer; Evelyn Choate, Recording Secretary and Frances D. Keough Corresponding 
Secretary/Publ icity. 

The Council is grateful for the support of the people of Wilmington, the Town Manager and the Board of 
Selectmen. 



Metropolitan Area Planning Council 



Thanks to the support of Wilmington and 100 other communities in the Boston region, the Metropolitan Area 
Planning Council (MAPC) was able to continue to provide communities with regional planning services 
throughout Fiscal Year 1990. MAPC appreciates Wilmington's continued support and looks forward to further 
service in the years ahead. 



-62-

3. MAPC also tracks recent and proposed commercial, industrial and residential development projects in 
Wilmington for research purposes. 

4. MAPC studies in the North Suburban Planning Council area include the Route 128 Study and a Water 
Supply Protection Study. 

5. As a member of the North Suburban Planning Council, Wilmington's planner and MAPC representative 
have helped prioritize local transportation projects to pursue their inclusion in the federal 
Transportation Improvement Program or other funding programs. 

6. Wilmington's MAPC representative, serving as Treasurer for MAPC, has also been quite active in the 
policy setting discussions of the MAPC Officers and the Executive Committee. 



The year 1990 has foreseen another year of changes in the board members. The temporary vacancies were 
filled during the April election by Joan Sadowski and Michael Donovan for the one year and two year 
unexpired terms of former board members. David Fitzgerald was elected to the five year term. The WHA 
extends a welcome to these new board members, as well as a thank you to Kevin McMillan on his retirement 
from the board after 13 years of faithful and dedicated service. 

This year proved to be a very busy and dynamic year to complete ongoing construction projects, as well as, 
filling of the new units of family and elderly housing. The 32 units of elderly housing are comprised of 26 
units of conventional, two handicapped accessible and four congregate units. The extensive renovations to 
the community hall, office, kitchen, laundry and maintenance rooms have been completed also. The tenants 
can once again enjoy their social activities. 

The "design review process" for the home for autistic children has met many hurdles. To date, a desireable 
site has not been located and the development schedule is on hold. 

The Community Development Corporation and the Wilmington Housing Authority, in conjunction with the 
Shawsheen Technical School, built a family home for the WHA. This home was completed in May 1990. We would 
like to highly commend the teachers and students for the excellent performance and work of the various 
trades of the school portrayed in the construction of this family home for us. We greatly appreciate the 
combined effort and teamwork of the Community Development Corporation and the Shawsheen Valley Technical 
School for putting this project together and seeing it through to the end. 

The present board members are Michael Donovan, Chairman; Joan Sadowski, Vice-Chairperson; Dan Gillis, 
Secretary; David Fitzgerald, Treasurer; Elaine Hachey, Assistant Treasurer. Office staff consists of our 
Executive Director, Ella Belmore and Administrative Assistant, Phyllis Tumsaroch. Edward Melanson is our 
Maintenance Mechanic.

The Authority is proud of its accomplishments in development and would like to thank the endeavors of our 
past board members, Kevin McMillan and Betty Keough for their support, work and time. Ue would also like 
thank the townspeople. Town Manager, Board of Selectmen, Department of Public Works, Wilmington Communit, 
Development Corporation, etc. for their support and work on various ongoing projects. 



Water & Sewer Department 



WATER 

"Aquifer Protection Zoning By-Laws" were adopted at the annual town meeting of April 28, 1990. 
This was very important to ground water protection for Wilmington and neighboring towns. 

The Water Department purchased 11.2 acres of property formerly owned by the Regional Health Center. This 
property was needed for wellhead protection to the Brown's Crossing Wellfield. A one acre parcel has been 
designated for a future fire sub-station. 

Outside water use restrictions were removed. 



A water main rehabilitation grant has been approved and accepted from the state. This project should begi 
sometime early 1991. 

A water audit and leak detection grant offer has been accepted from the state. 

A contract has been approved and signed with our consultants to clean and paint two water storage tanks. 

The Water Department worked in conjunction with the D.P.W. to expedite the completion of Aldrich Road by 
updating the water mains, hydrants and water services. 

SEWER 

The Northeast Sewer Interceptor design is still ongoing and nearing completion. 

New sewer extension proposals and plans are being reviewed. Some are currently under construction. 

The South Main Street sewer construction has been completed and approved for connections, (except the fir 
paving, to be done in the spring of 1991).

Department of Public Works 



In accordance with the Bylaws of the Town of Uilmington, 1 hereby respectfully submit the Annual Report on 
the activities of the Wilmington Department of Public Uorks for the year 1990. 

The Department of Public Works consists of six (6) divisions: Highway, Tree, Cemetery, Parks & Grounds, 
Engineering and Rubbish Collection and Disposal. The coordinating of all the activities of the six 
divisions under the Superintendent of the Department of Public Works allows the Town the optimum use of 
equipment, manpower and materials. 

* DPW - HIGHWAY DlVlSI0N-(658-4481 ) * 

All regular highway maintenance work was carried out during the year, such as sweeping streets, installing 
street and warning signs, patching streets, cleaning catch basins, cutting brush along the roadsides, 
picking up trash along our roadsides, painting and replacing guardrails, repairing broken curbing, painting 
safety lines on streets, etc. 

Drainage : 

Drainage systems were installed, repaired or extended at the following locations: McDonald Road, Hamlin 

Lane, Belmont Avenue, Arlene Avenue, Sheridan Avenue, Salem Street, Fairmont Avenue, Marjorie Road, 

Shawsheen Avenue and Kenwood Avenue. We also cleaned Lubbers Brook from Middlesex Avenue to Concord Street. 

Chapter 90 Construction : 

The reconstruction of Aldrich Road and the construction of sidewalks on the east side from Shawsheen Avenue 
to the Billerica line in now 80% completed. The other ZOX will be completed in the next construction season 

Chapter 90 Maintenance and Hot Top Program ; 

The following roads were upgraded with bituminous concrete: Burlington Avenue from Webber Street to beyond 
Chestnut Street plus the intersection including Chestnut Street, Marion Street and Deming Way. 

Traffic Lights : 

Installed new traffic lights on Burlington Avenue at the intersection of Chestnut Street. 
Snow & Ice Removal : 

The Highway Division recorded 49.0" of snow which is about average snowfall for the area. Snow & ice 
removal is a very expensive and major function of the Department of Public Works trying to keep our roads as 
safe as possible during the winter months. 



* DPW - TREE DlVISION-(658-2809) * 

The Tree Division carried out all regular maintenance work such as trimming, cutting, spraying and removing 

trees. We had to remove 50 roadside trees that were dead or interfered with public safety. Hornet nests 

were removed upon request from residents. The Town Common was illuminated with a fine display of Christmas 
lights again this year. 

Dutch Elm Disease: 

As a result of test, we had to remove six (6) Dutch Elm diseased trees. 
Mosquito Control : 

The Town is a member of the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project. With the regional approach we 
are able to provide our Town with a good environmentally sound and cost effective mosquito control. The 
three basic mosquito control methods are source reduction, larviciding and adulticing. 

* DPW - CEMETERY D I VI S ION - (658-3901) * 

All regular maintenance work was carried out throughout the year, such as mowing grass, trimming, resetting 
grave markers, pouring foundations for monuments, etc. 



-66- 



The Cemetery expansion is now 80% completed. Ue will finish the expansion during the next construction 
season.

* DPW - PARKS & GROUNDS DIVISI0N-(658-4481 ) 



All regular maintenance was carried out throughout the year such as cutting grass, trimming shrubs, marking 
ballfields for baseball, Softball, football, field hockey and soccer. Also, all fields and parks were 
fertilized. Due to the reduced funds, we were unable to make any further improvements on our infrastructure 



*DPW - ENGINEERING D I VI S I ON - (658-4499)* 



The Engineering Division assisted Town departments, boards and commissions such as the Planning Board, 
Conservation Commission, Building Inspector, Health Agent, Water Department and Assessor. 

The Division worked on the design for new traffic lights on Andover Street at Route 125, and inspected the 
installation of the traffic light on Burlington Avenue at Deming Way. The Division also worked on the 
reconstruction of Aldrich Road and the Cemetery expansion. 



*RUBBISH COLLECTION AND D I SPOSAL - (658-4481 )* 

The contract for rubbish collection and disposal is a function of the Department of Public Works. If 
taxpayers have any questions or complaints, please call the above number. 

I would like to take this time to thank the Recycling Advisory Committee and all the volunteers who made our 
first year of recycling a huge success. Also a big "thank you" to all the homeowners who brought their 
recyclables to the drop-off center at the North Woburn Line. 

In concluding my report, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Police Department for keeping us 
informed during the winter months of the road conditions, between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. 
weekdays, weekends and holidays; the Water Department for their help during snow storms, and all various 
departments for the cooperation extended during the year. I would like to thank the Town Manager, the 
Assistant Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen for their support throughout the year. Last but not 
least, the employees of the Department of Public Works who made 1990 a very productive year, my sincere 
thanks and appreciation. 



Handicapped Affairs Commission 



This past year proved to be one momentous for the history books. It marks the signing into law of, what is 
termed by some as the Emancipation Proclamation for people with disabilities, the Americans with 
Disabilities Act (ADA). Wilmington can be proud to know that it was represented at the preceding rallies in 
Washington, D.C. that helped persuade Congress to pass the bill through without weakening amendments. 



67- 



Here at home, the work of the Commission included the usual handicapped parking violations and permits, 
service and information referrals, the fostering of self-advocacy amongst disabled persons. Our work also 
included coordination of and/or advise on projects and programs pertaining to the equal opportunities of th« 
disabled community of Wilmington. The Commission voted to purchase a telecommunication device for the deaf 
(TTY) to be installed in the Town Hall. This will bring telephone accessibilty for the deaf one step closer 
to an equal footing regarding town buildings. The Commission has involved itself in issues from "Where can 
I get a temporary use wheelchair?" and "How can we build an accessible playground?" to "What is my legal 
right?" and "Will anyone help me?" We have, to best of my knowledge, never left anyone hanging or waiting 
for an answer. 

Access for students and parents with disabilities to all of our schools is on going and keeping abreast of 
the demand. Wilmington's community based disabilities representation, the Wilmington Committee for Citizen' 
with Disabilities, Inc. (WCCO or the AIM Committee) and the corresponding PAC and SNAC have made a 
commendable effort in keeping a steady dialogue with us and the pertinent departments, committees, the 
Building Inspector, etc. of Wilmington to assure steady progress with this regard. 

We are presently working with WCCD to raise funds to purchase, for installation in the public library, a 
Xerox/Kurzwei I personal reader, an optical scanner that turns print into speech. This device would access 
the contents of the library, with the exception of graphics, to the blind, visually impaired, dyslexic and 
others unable to or needing assistance in perceiving the printed word. 

Accessible housing is an issue that must be taken up soon. We, as advocates for the rights of the disabled 
know that an individual should not be institutionalized unless he/she is a criminal. There are just under 
3,000 Massachusetts citizens, under the Department of Mental Retardation alone, remaining in state 
institutions. These fellow citizens represent only 17% of those served by the department yet their 
institutionalization is consuming 52% of the state money provided. The remaining 83X live in community 
based systems run and operated by small, nonprofit charitable organizations. Our experiences have shown us 
that in communities with no disabilities representation (such as the City of Medford) integration, in the 
form of group homes, of the people commonly known as the mentally retarded has met with unfounded resistanc' 
by the city councilmen. Their actions can be justified only by ignorance and fear of the unknown. Unlike 
Medford, Wilmington turns on the lights before deciding how to deal with a sound from a darkened room. 



Wilmington High School wishes to thank its town for its continued support and wisdom. 

A tremendous output of faculty effort in the last year has been devoted to preparation for our 10 year 
accreditation visitation from the New England Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges (NEASSC). 

Under the co-chairmanship of Mrs. Virginia Blodgett of the Mathematics Department and Mr. Robert Dicey of 
the Industrial Arts Department, the faculty spent one very intensive year examining every instructional and 
support area, citing felt deficiencies and strengths in each component that the incoming accreditation team 
might or might not highlight. 

From October 21 through October 24, a team of thirteen educators from all over New England chaired by 

Dr. Robert Antonucci, Superintendent of the Falmouth School Department visited our campus and examined the 

pre-evaluation claims of our faculty regarding all aspects of the Wilmington High School program. 

The finished report is on file in the town library and available from the principal's office at the high 
school for any citizen that might want to pursue its contents. The actual accreditation vote will be taken 
in the spring by the New England Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges (NEASSC). We have every 
reason to believe it will be quite favorable. 




WILMINGTON HIGH SCHOOL

Edward J. Woods, Assistant Principal 



-68- 



Our Guidance Department continues to do an excellent job. Approximately 125 seniors and their guidance 
counselors attended the 12th Annual College Fair sponsored by Merrimacic College and the New England 
Association of College Admissions Counselors on September 26. More than 250 universities provided exhibits 
and information for students. 

In 1990, 82X of Wilmington High School's graduating class of 166 students went on to further education as 
compared with 56% in 1984. Our 1990 class won over $700,000 in scholarships and aid from an exciting mix of 
universities, colleges and technical schools that include, to mention a few. Harvard University, the United 
States Coast Guard Academy, Boston College, Holy Cross College, Merrimack College, The University of New 
Hampshire, Westfield State College and the New England Fuel Burner Institute. 

The Wilmington High School guidance department provides two annual financial aid workshops and college night 
presentations for parents and students. 

Work Study Programs and School Business Partnership efforts also exist at the high school directly 
benefiting young people headed into the world of work upon graduation. 

Miss Louise Bocchino, Department Chairman of the district's Foreign Language program would like to report 
that sixth grade students are now taking a half year of French and a half year of Spanish. In this fashion, 
students get a chance to sample both languages before deciding what their concentration will be in grades 7 
through 12. 

She would also like the community to know that several former students who are now in college have elected 
to spend a semester or year overseas where they will be taking all their courses in either French or 
Spanish. All of those involved experienced the Wilmington School Department's five year program. 

Mrs. Shea, the high school librarian, reports that her area in 1990 continued to support the curriculum, to 
offer library and research skills instruction, and to provide a variety of materials, including paperback 
and hardbound books, newspapers and magazines, microfiche, computer software and video cassettes. Services 
provided to teachers and students included electronic research and cable television. 

Mrs. Shea is concerned that because her budget has been cut in half, she will not be able to maintain 
programs begun in 1989. She reports that she has made a few new acquisitions. 

The Home Economics department is very proud of its second year accomplishments in the Child Development 1 
and II program(s). The pre-schoolers and high schoolers work well together under the leadership of 
Mrs. Smith and Mrs. St. Onge. Halloween activities and a parade, a Thanksgiving turkey feast, and a Holiday 
party for parents have been some of their successful activities. 

The Furniture and Cabinetmaking curriculum in the Industrial Arts Program is designed as a one year course 
of study. The basic curriculum of the above is to develop the ability to use basic woodworking tools and 
equipment and to develop logical step by step design and construction procedures for the development of fine 
furniture construction. 

In the Industrial Arts Metal I program, the students are given a project to be designed, jigs to be 
constructed, jobs to be applied for, and a product to be purchased and placed in an attractive display. 

The English Department reports that sophomore students in 1990 had the opportunity to select an English/Word 
Processing course collaboratively taught by members of the English and Business Departments. Using software 
common to the present communications industry, students can improve on the needed discipline that 
accompanies proper writing. 

Wilmington's grade 7 through 12 English curriculum provides practice in composing, analogies, sentence 
completion, reading comprehension and vocabulary development. 

The high school's student activity program continues to be dynamic, featuring a vibrant school newspaper, a 
large Peer Leadership unit, a Medical Explorers club, a Model Congress/United Nations group, and a Students 
Against Driving Drunk chapter. 

Two of the student groups (Peer Leadership and Medical Explorers) have undertaken in the current year to 
feed 200 to 250 of the needy one day a month at "Bread and Roses" in Lawrence. The agency in question could 
best be described as a soup kitchen. 

Ninety of our youngsters are working on the above service project which involves everything from purchase, 
through preparation and transport, to serving.

Wilmington High School's Class of 1991 includes one semi -f inal i st and four commended student participants 
the Princeton, New Jersey based National Merit Scholarship program. 

Our athletic programs distinguished themselves when Mr. Richard Scanlon was named Coach of the Year in boys 
Soccer by the Lowell Sun and John Lynch and Judy O'Connell were designated Athletes of the Year in Soccer 
and Field Hockey in that same publication. 

NORTH INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL 
Michael Tikonoff, Principal 
and 

WEST INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL 
James Jordan, Principal 

The North and West Intermediate opened their doors to over 670 middle school students in September. The 
students and their parents were then introduced to several changes in the school's programs. 

After a year of planning, each school implemented a new scheduling format which is more in line with a true 
middle school philosophy. The schools have abandoned their traditional junior high bell schedule for a more 
flexible one. The new schedule is not driven by bells. Teachers utilize varied blocks of time to teach tht 
students. This allows them to meet the needs of the curriculum. Each grade level team has their own 
schedule which also includes a separate lunch period. In fact, there are three different schedules going or 
at the same time. 

Both schools have developed Activity Block Programs which meet twice each week. These activities; i.e. 
Band, Chorus, etc., allow students to participate within programs of high interest to them. Teachers 
develop these activity programs in areas that they themselves enjoy. 

Each year the grade 8 students participate in an end of the year field trip. This years' class will be 
traveling to Washington, D.C. for a four day tour of the capital. We hope that this experience will allow 
each student to develop a better understanding and pride in our nation. 

SHAWSHEEN SCHOOL 
Richard Gorham, Principal 
Michele C. Nortonen, Assistant Principal 

The Shawsheen Elementary School's enrollment continues to climb with a student population that hovers at 60C. 
children with promises to increase as new housing in the area reaches completion. The children and parents 
of the Shawsheen School are fortunate to have a dedicated and conscientious teaching staff and very active 
Parent Advisory Committee meeting the children's needs. 

The Parent Advisory Committee has developed a very full agenda of activities for the Shawsheen School 
community. To date two assemblies. Opera to Go and The Gerwick Puppets have been presented to the 
children. Upcoming assemblies include Samerya McCord's Journey into Jazz and David Zucker's Poetry in 
Motion. The Craft Fair, Pie Auction and the award of three academic grants to Mrs. Jean Latham, Mrs. Vita 
Graham and Mrs. Ann O'Neill sparked our first four months of school. A Mathathon, After School/Saturday 
Program, Pancake Breakfast, Spaghetti Supper and Ice Cream Smorgasbord are but a few of the activities that, 
will round out the school year. Enough can't be said to congratulate the parents of the Shawsheen School. 
Their unselfish commitment to their children's education and the quality of the school program is unequallec 

Two projects worthy of note are: DARE and CHARLIE. DARE is offered to Grade 5 children and taught by 
Officer Jim White, Wilmington Police, giving children guidance with respect to peer pressures, self-esteem, 
consequences of drug abuse, and why people use drugs. The program covers 17 weeks of instruction. Project 
CHARLIE (Chemical Abuse Resolution relies I.n Education) is taught by Mrs. Laura Stinson to students in 
grades 1-4. This program emphasizes chemical use and abuse, issues of self-esteem, decision-making, and 
forming and maintaining positive relationships with others. 

Weekly school newsletters keep parents informed, the monthly BRIDGE provides parents more in-depth 
information and the plethora of daily information from classroom teachers keep parents and children well 
informed as to the happenings going on in the Shawsheen School.

WILDUOOD SCHOOL 
Robert J. Arsenault, Principal 

The Uildwood Elementary School enrollment has continued to increase once again this year. At the present 
time, 320 students are attending our school. The staff continues to provide the students with an exciting 
and diversified educational program. 

The Uildwood PAC has sponsored several enrichment programs for the students at the Uildwood School, during 
this past year. Some of the worthwhile programs presented to the students include: The Falconer, The 
Southward Travelling Zoo,, the Stephen Foster Story, The New England Touring Theatre, The New England 
Aquarium Tide Pool, the Museum of Science Electricity Demonstration and Earth Tunes. The students have 
enjoyed these educational activities presented by these talented visitors. 

In November of 1990, the students of the Uildwood Elementary School began a year long incentive reading 
program called "Reading Around the Uorld". The purpose of the program is to foster a global awareness of 
people and cultures and to encourage children to be lifelong readers. 

The Uildwood School's Gifted and Talented Program will be dealing with a major topic called "Planet Ocean". 
Each student will research a topic related to our oceans. They will learn how to increase skills in these 
areas: notetaking, making diagrams, displaying work, presentations, research and organizing. 

A program called Lego Logo will also be utilized by the students. It will enable the students to learn 
important problem-solving and cr i t i ca I - th i nki ng skills. Through specialized activities, students will gain 
first hand experiences of gear ratio, mechanical advantage and simple machines such as block and tackle. 

Both of these topics will help students learn the value of collaboration and teamwork. Children will 
improve in critical thinking, deductive and hypothesizing skills. Above all, the students will gain a new 
sense of self-confidence. 

First graders at the Uildwood School are "switching" classes for the subjects of health, science and social 
studies. Each of the three first grade teachers is truly becoming an expert in her particular subject and 
the students are greatly benefiting. 

Several residents from the Uilmington Uoods Nursing Home have been visiting with the first grade children on 
Uednesday mornings. These seniors read to the children and offer encouragement and assistance to these 
primary grade students. The children look forward to these visits. 

Fifth grade students also visit once a week and read to a first grade partner. This has proven to be a very 
rewarding experience for all. 

Every student in Grades 1-5 had the opportunity to display their crafts and artwork by decorating the 
Uildwood Cafeteria for this year's Uinter Concert. Uildwood students have also been focusing on the use of 
a multitude of techniques and mediums to create drawings and designs. 

The first and second grade students of the Uildwood Elementary School are using music as an enhancement to 
the regular classroom curriculum. Students have learned songs and movements, to concepts including 
direction, geography, shapes, colors, numbers and poetry. 

All children in Grades 3-5 will be gearing up for the Spring Physical Fitness Testing. The Physical Fitness 
tests will include the mile/9 minute run, sit and reach flexibility test, sit-ups, skinfold calipers, 
chin-ups/f lex arm hang. The children in Grades K-2 are focusing on movement exploration with beanbags, 
playground balls, hoola hoops, jump roping skills and parachute activities. 

The children in Grades 1-4 are participating in Project Charlie classes that focus in on building 
self-esteem, establishing healthy relationships and developing decision making skills. The children utilize 
worksheets, storybooks, audio visuals and feeling cube game to establish an atmosphere of trust and caring.

UOBURN STREET SCHOOL 
Dolores Silva, Principal 
Richard OeRosas, Assistant Principal 

Playground 

The Woburn Street School P.A.C. has embarked upon a project to provide the children with a playground that 
is accessible to handicapped children and adults alike. 

This project started in the spring of 1988, but has really gone into full operation this year. Fundraising 
events were kicked off on November 29 with a Dinner/Roast of Superintendent of Schools William Fay, and 
other events, including an afternoon of music by the Northshoremen scheduled for February 10, 1991. 

The design of the playground is in keeping with safety factors, as well as supervisional concerns. It is 
the goal of the P.A.C. to complete its fundraising efforts by spring so that the actual construction can 
take place before the close of school in June. 

Gifted and Talented 

The elimination of the Gifted and Talented Teacher position created a void for youngsters who qualified for 
these enrichment activities and services. These youngsters have demonstrated their ability and the School 
Committee has recognized this need by providing a small stipend to provide a program for them. 

At present, twenty-seven (27) students are participating in an after school program for academically 
talented students. Mr. Brian Smith, a fifth grade teacher at the Wildwood School, meets with the students 
in the Woburn Street School Library for one hour each Tuesday afternoon. 

The projects are varied and creative. The students are enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoy their "club" 
meetings. 

Seem Class 

The Woburn Street School is now housing an additional SEEM class for Learning Disabled students. 

The class is made up of one female and five male students ranging from six to nine years of age. The 
students come from the various communities served by SEEM. 

The curriculum for each student is based on their Individual Educational Plan. Some students may be on a 
second grade level in math, but a first grade level in Language. The curriculum is as diversified as the 
students in the class. 

The students not only have academic subjects, but receive assistance in other areas such as Speech and 
Occupational Therapy. 

Mrs. Pam Lavochkin is the teacher assigned to this class and her educational assistant is Mrs. Charlotte 
Grasso. 

Read Aloud Program 

Because we believe that reading aloud to children is an enjoyable, worthwhile and educationally important 
activity, teachers and parents at Woburn Street School have united to launch a three pronged "Reading Aloud" 
program. 

A calendar in the school library lists parents who have signed up to read to a class during their Library 
period on a regular basis. Senior Citizens and community leaders have committed to being guest readers in 
the classroom. Students have benefited from this literary interaction with businessmen, dentists, 
journalists, ex-teachers and even the busy Superintendent of Schools. 

A third facet of the program will start shortly when kindergarten students will sign up for a family "Read a 
Story Each Evening" activity in which parent and child will share good books at home. 



-72- 



Computer Program 



The Computer Program at the Woburn Street School is used by all classes, kindergarten through grade five. 

Due to budget cuts the school no longer has the services of a computer specialist to coordinate a systematic 
computer program. Teachers in grades three through five take their classes to the lab for one period each 
week. 

To date it has been highly successful. Ue are deeply indebted to them for their time and effort. 

Students in grades kindergarten to grade two are fortunate to have a program that has been coordinated by 
some of our parent volunteers. 

On a regularly scheduled basis, the students are being instructed on the use of the computer and in 
utilizing specific programs to assist them in math and reading skills. 

Mrs. Ann Falanga and Mrs. Joan Oatis are the parent coordinators of this program, and they are assisted by 
Susan Hardimon, Andrea Collins, Eileen Cassidy, Pat Kane, HaryAnn Dulong, Darlene Duggan, Eileen Gilligan, 
Linda Brassil, Odette Kent, Maryann Babineau, June LeFave, Marianne Gaudet. 

PERFORMING AND FINE ARTS DEPARTMENT 
Lorraine M. Kalil, Director 

The past year was both evenful and successful for the Performing and Fine Arts Program in the classrooms, 
the community, and in neighboring communities. 

In addition to a full and arduous program in the classrooms, we look back with pride on many programs, 
projects and undertakings that were highlights of the year. 

Our pilot program of theatre arts in selected classrooms in grades three through five was gaining momentum 
and was meeting and surpassing all expectations. Students and teachers were enthusiastic as creativity, 
spontaneity, self-confidence, articulation and clarity in oral communication was developed. Unfortunately, 
this program and that of the middle schools and high school were terminated in June due to fiscal 
constraints. 

Weekly visits of the "music teacher" were welcomed in the Early Childhood classes at the high school. A 
unique program that incorporated the use of "friends" (the instruments of the orchestra) taught big and 
small, soft and loud, high and low, as well as rhythm and melodic line. Ue are pleased and proud to be able 
to continue this program. 

Early in the year, art students and drama club members were busily preparing their entries which were well 
received in the Globe Scholastic Art Show and the Globe Drama Festival respectively. 

In March, the High School Band stepped off to the strains of George M. Cohan in the St. Patrick's Day Parade 
in Lawrence. In addition to their numerous parades and appearances at home, they further distinguished 
themselves in the Woburn Halloween Parade and the Lawrence Santa Claus Parade. 

Throughout the year, the Wilmington High School Show Choir performed throughout the community at the request 
of organizations, health-care facilities and corporations. Wherever they appeared they brought an abundance 
of smi les of good will. 

On March 8, twenty-eight people attended the Photography Teachers Conference at the High School. Our 
photography teacher, Suzette Hall, co-hosted this most successful event where teachers from Connecticut, New 
Hampshire and Massachusetts shared a diversity of approaches to the teaching of photography. 

In April, thirty members of the Jazz-Rock Ensemble performed during lunch time at Textron. Later on in the 
year, in conjunction with the cheerleaders and flag squad, the entire high school band performed an outdoor 
concert at Converse. 

Throughout the year, many of our students distinguished themselves in Boston University's summer art 
workshop. Northeastern University's drama workshop and Northeast District Orchestra and Band. 



-73- 



Simultaneously, this past year saw the beginning of a fund-raising program for the renovation of the High 
School Auditorium. Spearheaded by the staff of the Performing and Fine Arts Department, "In Celebration of 
the Arts" encompasses Wilmington residents, alumni and friends. 1990 was indeed eventful. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT 
James M. Gillis, Director 

The Physical Education Department continued to serve all students (K-12), as well as providing an adaptive 
program for students with special needs. The program sponsors a physical education "Mile Club" to encourage 
physical fitness in Grades 5 through 8. 

The Health program in Grades K-5, under the direction of Mrs. Laura Stinson, has incorporated "Project 
Charlie" into the curriculum. In Grade 5 we offer the DARE program in cooperation with the Wilmington 
Police Department and Officer James White. These programs emphasize the importance of drug/alcohol 
education through the teaching of self-esteem, responsibi Ity and decision making. 

The Physical Education Department cited several students for outstanding achievement in physical education:

READING/LANGUAGE ARTS DEPARTMENT 
Brenda Horan, Director 

New Basal Selection : An elementary basal reader adoption committee was established. The committee composed 
of elementary classroom teachers, reading specialists and parents met throughout the year in order to review 
1990 editions of basal readers for grades 1 through 5. Several classroom teachers are piloting basals. A 
final selection is scheduled for Spring of 1991. 

The Chapter 1 Reading Parent Advisory Council held three general meetings. An informational meeting was 
held in the Fall. The annual "Make and Take" winter workshop proved again to be a success. The Spring 
meeting was a presentation of student work completed throughout the year. Stories and poems written by the 
students as well as a play were shared. The Newspaper Committee published three newsletters which contained 
children's work and informational articles for parents. The PAC officers for the 1989-1990 year were: 

Pat Fenton, Chairperson 
Patricia Parker, Vice Chairperson 
Ann Fisher, Secretary 
Nancy Savoie, Comptroller 
Christine Maynard, Newsletter Chairperson 

To assist parents with ideas for helping their children at home, the READING/LANGUAGE ARTS ACTIVITIES 
NEWSLETTER was distributed monthly to all students in grades K-5. This monthly newsletter was started in 
1983 and has served as a valuable source of information. 

Wilmington grade 5 through 7 students participated in the LOWELL SUN SPELLING BEE . This was coordinated by 
Reading Specialist, Gerald LaPointe. Candice Forester-Shawsheen School, Joseph McHale-Wi Idwood School, 
Christopher Caruso- Woburn Street School, Ava Gordinier-West Intermediate School, Elise Boisvert-North 
Intermediate School were finalists who participated in the area competition held at the University of Lowell. 

The NINTH ANNUAL SUMMER READING PROGRAM which is a cooperative effort between the Wilmington Memorial 
Library under the supervision of Mrs. Sara Rueter and the Wilmington Reading Department was held. The major 
objectives of this program were to encourage summer reading and visits to the public library. The theme for 
the Ninth Annual Summer Reading Program was "Yummer Summer" or "Readi I icious Summer". A kit consisting of a 
folder for logging in library visits and books read during the summer was given to each child who attended. 
Special activities were held throughout the summer. 

In September, certificates of participation were presented in each elementary school. The library reported 
extremely high circulation of books during the summer. Wilmington students are discovering the rewards of 
reading while on vacation. 

The VOLUNTEER READING TUTOR PROGRAM was continued this year. New to the program was Mrs. Edythe DeFrancesco 
who volunteered at the Woburn Street School. The VRT's were organized in April, 1973 under the direction of 
the Wilmington Reading Department. 

Reading Specialist, Nancy Stouffer, was selected as a semi -final ist for a LUCRETIA CROCKER FELLOWSHIP GRANT 
sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Education. Her project was titled Starting Early, a 
Kindergarten Reading Program Using Predictable Books. 

SCHOOL FOODSERVICE DEPARTMENT 
Anne M. Quinn, Director 

The Wilmington School Foodservice Department has been very active and busy this year. Along with serving 
approximately 300,000 student meals and 17,000 Senior Citizen lunches, we have been catering many 
activities. Our services have been called on to prepare, serve or supervise the National Honor Society 
Banquet, PAC Spaghetti Suppers and Breakfasts, Rotary Thanksgiving Breakfast, School/Business Partnership 
Breakfast, and many Coffee Hours and Meetings. 

The Senior Citizen Lunch Program both in-school and Meals-On-Wheels has continued to run well this year. 
It's nice to see new faces and continue to welcome our standbys. 



-75- 



The staff has had an opportunity to participate in training programs presented by Massachusetts School 
Foodservice Association and the Bureau of School Nutrition Services, Department of Education. 

We are hoping for increased student lunch participation. As a self-supporting department it is extremely 
difficult in this era of rising prices to continue to be self-supporting. We are being careful with food 
and supplies to conserve as much as possible. 

We have implemented as many suggestions as possible and continue to seek-out new ideas and possibilities to 
improve food service and always have an up-beat, current program for the students and other participants. 

We are extremely pleased to have a super commendation from the High School Certification Team for a well run 
program with variety and innovative ideas. 

SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT 
Cleo N. Fredette, Jr., Director 

Each year the Special Education Department evaluates portions of its programs and services. During the last 
calendar year the department evaluated, using the combination of external private evaluators and local 
personnel, the Chapter 766 TEAM evaluation process, the integrated preschool program at Wilmington High 
School, and psychological, physical and occupational therapies throughout the system. In each of these five 
programs/service areas specifically designed questionnaires were sent to parents who had children either 
receiving the service or enrolled in the program during the past year. The special education department 
conducts these ongoing evaluations in order to survey, on a systematic basis, the degree of consumer 
satisfaction with the programs/services being provided in Wilmington to special needs students. 

The survey results on all five studies yielded very positive results. Approximately 90X of the parents 
surveyed, in all of the above areas, indicated high degrees of satisfaction with either the program and/or 
services their child was receiving, were dissatisfied and approximately 6-7X were undecided. The 

overall program/service evaluations validated the continuation of the above program/service areas with only 
minor modifications being required. 

The special education department is planning to evaluate all of its resource rooms and substantially 
separate programs during the upcoming year.

Shawsheen Valley Regional 
Vocational Technical School 



Elected representatives of the Regional School Conmittee are: Anthony R. Nazzone and Mark Trifiro from 
Bedford; Kenneth L. Buffum, Chairman, and Bernard Hoar, Secretary, from Billerica; John P. Miller and 
Alfred Verrier from Burlington; Richard E. Griffin and J. Peter Downing from Tewksbury; and Kevin J. 
Sowyrda, Vice Chairman, and John Gil I is. Treasurer, from Wilmington. 

The Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School District is one of twenty-five regional 
vocational technical school districts within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The principle objective is 
to provide comprehensive vocational/technical educational experiences for high school youths residing in the 
towns of Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Tewksbury, and Wilmington. Upon graduation students receive a high 
school diploma and a mastery certificate trained in a specialized technical area. Many Shawsheen Valley 
Technical graduates further their education in post-secondary study in colleges and universities, while most 
enter the world of work as experienced technicians and craftsmen. 

Eleven hundred and fifty-four high school youth attended Shawsheen Valley Technical during the 1990 school 
year. In June of 1990, two hundred and sixty-seven students graduated, with over ninety percent entering 
the world of work or pursuing higher education. Shawsheen Valley Technical continued to be the state leader 
for all vocational technical school districts in Massachusetts, placing students in either well paying jobs 
within their area of specialized training, or preparing students for future technical and academic study. 

Because of its outstanding reputation, numerous visitors reviewed the extraordinary educational opportunites 
offered by Shawsheen Valley Technical 's outstanding faculty. During 1990, visitors included educators from 
Kyoto, Japan; the Chairman of the National League of Cities Educational Task Force, Mayor Donald Fraser of 
Minneapolis, Minnesota; and the entire educational leadership team from the Hubert H. Humphrey Occupational 
Resource Center located in Boston, Massachusetts. 

Many activities took place during 1990 which deserve special recognition: 

•During 1990, significant capital investment was made at the school. Over one million dollars was spent 
modernizing equipment throughout the facility. A new mainframe computer system was purchased and is 
utilized for all administrative needs including; payroll, budgeting, output of daily variance reports, 
attendance, student scheduling, comprehensive financial management services and student information 
services. The new VAX 3300 and 3400 series is also utilized by the students majoring in Business Technology 
and Data Processing. 

All of the equipment used in the school's twenty technical/vocational programs has been upgraded providing 
students with the most modern technology available. 

*In addition, nearly two million dollars was spent modernizing the facility. The school was fortunate to 
receive member town support providing these resources, and significant improvements were made to the heating 
and electrical system. The major renovation work was conducted during the summer months and included; 
replacing all fifteen year old carpet, replacing 60X of internal lighting and reducing electricity usage 
simultaneously; replacing all internal fire doors; repairing the seven hundred car parking lot; repaving the 
school's tennis courts; significant improvements to the heating system; and completely renovating the school 
pool and auditorium. 

Shawsheen Valley Technical offers a facility well equipped to meet the ever changing training needs of 
students, completely renovated to continue offering residents of member towns the best in vocational 
technical education well into the twenty-first century. 

*The Curriculum Council, consisting of Shawsheen Valley Technical Administrators and Teachers, continued to 
develop and recommend to the Shawsheen Valley Technical School District Committee significant improvements 
to the curricula offerings. The Council is committed to empowering teachers and providing them a forum for 
significant input into the decision making process. Various recommendations implemented since the formation 
of the Council in 1988 were obvious when the school district received its educational assessment results 
from the Department of Education published in December of 1990. Significant achievement improvements were 
documented in all academic areas, with Reading and Science test results showing significant improvements 
over the results published in December of 1988. 

*In competition with sixty four state-wide vocational technical school districts, Shawsheen students 
collected over thirty-seven medals in competition sponsored by the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America. 
Eight Shawsheen students were selected to participate in national competitions held in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 
June 1990. Students from Health Technology received a national Silver Medal in the Health Knowledge Bowl 
competition.

*Over three hundred Shawsheen Valley Technical students participated in the various interscholastic athletic 
programs offered by the school district. League Championships were generated in Soccer and Cheer leading. 

*In March of 1990, the school district reorganized its existing plant maintenance department, updated job 
descriptions consistent with school needs, and received School Committee approval. 

The school district continued its tradition of training adults at no cost to the local taxpayer. Five 
hundred and sixty-seven adults took advantage of Shawsheen's Adult Education program offered evenings during 
the school year. In addition, the district received state and federal grants allowing various adult 
training programs during the school day. Examples of successful adult training programs included: 
seventeen unemployed adults received training as Medical Laboratory Assistants with a ninety-five percent 
successful placement for these adults; another adult training program in Electronic Troubleshooting allowed 
over one hundred adults career preparation as technicians; and twenty-two adults were trained as deisel 
mechanics, with over nineteen receiving employment in the diesel mechanics trade. 

*The district applied to become an "Automotive Center of Excellence" as part of a national accreditation in 
cooperation with the New England Association of Automotive Warehouse Distributors. A self evaluation was 
completed during 1990, and a site visitation is expected to be complete in January of 1991. The district 
completely modernized its automotive department consistent with NATEF specification, and hopes to become a 
statewide training center to be utilized by existing automotive technicians after the normal school day. 
The Massachusetts Department of Occupational Education approved approximately $30,000 in grant funds 
providing the district resources to modernize automotive tools and equipment. 

*An in-house Computer Aided Advisory Connmittee, consisting of Shawsheen Valley Technical staff, was 
formalized to evaluate the intergration of all software and microcomputers in all academic and technical 
offerings at the school. Hardware improvements were realized for the reading laboratory and within the 
technical illustration department, and future purchase of software is articulated by various programs. 
Also, one year and five year plans were developed to guarantee the intergration and efficient utilization of 
all computer related purchases within the school building. 

*Shawsheen Valley Technical was one of five school districts in the United States to be chosen to design anc 
implement curriculum in Applied Biology. 

*A Peer Leadership program was formalized by the Shawsheen Valley Technical Guidance Department. A dynamic 
group of students assembled to assist peers in the afternoon tutoring program and serve as student mentors 
for students experiencing social adjustment issues. Peer leaders assist in the annual open house programs, . 
and are quite active in regional activities with other high school peer leadership groups. 

Finally, the school district performed many services for the benefit of member communities. 

♦Construction was completed on a split level home by the building trades cluster, providing affordable 
housing in cooperation with the Wilmington Housing Authority and the Wilmington Development Corporation. 

*In the fall of 1990, construction began on a new garrison colonial in the town of Billerica. Each year 
Shawsheen Valley Technical builds one complete home in one of the member towns. The home is built for local 
housing authorities and/or corporations or for an individual selected by a lottery method. Interested 
residents or housing entities are encouraged to contact the Shawsheen Valley Technical Business Manager for 
inclusion in future lottery selections. 

*The Masonry Department completed a concrete block building at Livingston Park in Tewksbury to be used as a 
storage area for the local youth baseball league. 

*The Machine Shop, Carpentry Department and Drafting Department fabricated a sign for the press box at the 
Wilmington High School Field. 

*The Carpentry Department installed cabinets and counters at the Senior Citizen Center located in Bedford. 

*The Automotive and Autobody Departments repaired and reconditioned several vehicles for the Billerica 
Police Department.

In addition to the aforementioned projects (which give only a small sample of various projects completed 
yearly benefiting member communities), Shawsheen Valley Technical continued to provide comprehensive 
services benefiting residents and municipalities. The Graphic Arts cluster printed various reports and 
serviced various printing needs; the Culinary Program continued its Rams Head Dining Room open to the public 
on a daily basis; the Bakery Program continued to provide a daily supply of a variety of freshly made baked 
goods and the Cosmetology students rendered their services to area residents in our newly renovated 
hairdressing salon. 

Shawsheen Valley Technical gratefully appreciates the continued support received from member communities, 
Town Administrators, boards and commissions, and looks forward to serving the needs of area residents for 
many years to come.

ARTICLE 22: To see if the Town will vote to add Section 6.6 to the Wilmington Zoning Bylaw: 
6.6 Ground Water Protection District 



6.6.1 Purpose - The ground water underlying the Town is an important resource supplying drinking 

water to inhabitants of Wilmington. Surrounding communities rely upon Wilmington to protect 
their ground water resources as well. 

Accidental spills and discharges of petroleum products and other hazardous materials and 
sewage discharge have repeatedly threatened the quality of ground water supplies throughout 
Massachusetts, posing potential public health and safety hazards and threatening economic 
losses to affected communities. 



These districts are designed to protect the zones of contribution to Wilmington's 
municipal supply wells (A Districts) and future potential well sites (B Districts). 

6.6.2 Ground Water Protection Districts A and B - Ground Water Protection Districts (GWPD) shall 
be as delineated on the Zoning Map of the Town of Wilmington and shall be superimposed over 
any other district established by the Bylaw. They are based upon a 5-foot interval water 
table map, surficial geologic mapping and ground water modeling. Where the (change premi ses 
to) lots are split by the Ground Water Protection District boundary, this bylaw shall apply 
only to that portion of the (change premi ses to) lot that is within the district. 

Applicability - This bylaw will not apply to present uses and existing (change 

parcels to) lots as set forth in the protection afforded by M.G.L, Chapter 40A, Section 6. 

Definitions for the following sections are contained in Section 6.6.9 of this bylaw. 

6.6.3 Design and Operations Guidelines - The following design and operation requirements shall be 
observed for all uses within the Ground Water Protection Districts: 



6.6.3.1- Liquid petroleum and gasoline products of any kind must be stored in a manner consistent with 
(add Chapter 5) Section 37 of the Bylaws of the Inhabitants of the Town of Wilmington Revised 
and other applicable regulations. 

6.6.3.2- Road salt must be stored within a structure designed to prevent the generation of 
contaminated run-off or leachate. 

6.6.3.3- Pesticides must be stored within a building or structure that will prevent an accidental 
release onto or below the land surface. 

6.6.3.4- Commercial fertilizers and soil conditioners, in amounts greater than for normal household 
use, must be stored in a structure with an impermeable cover and liner designed to prevent 
the generation of contaminated run-off or leachate. 

6.6.3.5- Commercial stockpiling of animal manures must be done in a structure with an impermeable 
cover and liner designed to prevent the generation of contaminated run-off or leachate. 

6.6.3.6- After any earth removal, a final grading must be achieved greater than four (4) feet above 
the historical high ground water mark (as determined by the Board of Health) within 
forty-five (45) days of removal. This does not include excavations for the construction of 
building foundations or the installation of utility works. All earth removal shall comply 
with (add Chapter 5) Section 32 of the Bylaws of the Inhabitants of the Town of Wilmington 
Revised and other applicable regulations. 

6.6.3.7- Spill control provisions must be installed in the vicinity of chemical or fuel delivery 
points. 

6.6.3.8- Hazardous materials must be stored in a structure with an impermeable cover and liner 
designed to prevent the generation of contaminated run-off or leachate. 

6.6.3.9 - Corrodible or dissolvable materials must be in a structure with an impermeable cover and 
liner designed to prevent the generation of contaminated run-off or leachate. 



6.6.3.10- A closed vapor recovery system is required for each structure which allows the evaporation of 
hazardous materials into its interior to prevent discharge of contaminated condensate into 
the ground water.

6.6.3.11- Disposal. For any hazardous wastes to be produced (change to generated) in quantities 
greater than those associated with normal household use, the applicant for a building permit 
must demonstrate the availability and feasibility of disposal methods which are in 
conformance with M.G.L, Chapter 21C, as amended. 

6.6.3.12- Drainage. All runoff from impervious surfaces shall be drained in a manner designed to 
prevent the contamination of ground water and to recharge on site, to the extent possible. 
( Change - All runoff prior to discharge shall be preceded by oil, grease and sedimentation 
traps to facilitate the removal of contaminants.) (To read: "All runoff prior to discharge 
shall be preceded by oil, grease and sedimentation traps in accordance with the standard 
design of the Department of Public works, to facilitate the removal of contaminants, where- 
in the opinion of the Town Engineer, such traps are warranted by reason of site conditions 
and design considerations.") Dry wells shall be used only where other methods are not 
possible and shall also be preceded by oil, grease and sedimentation traps to facilitate 
removal of contaminants. Roof runoff from buildings may be drained into dry wells without 
traps unless the roof contains exposed mechanical equipment or is coated with asphalt.

The Polls closed at 8:00 p.m. and the machine count was taken and the eighty-three (83) absentee ballots 
were included in the final tally. Due to a mixup between precincts three and six the machines in those 
precincts had to be closed out about 8:00 a.m. While the machines were being re-programmed the voters were 
allowed to vote on absentee ballots. In Precinct three, eighteen voters chose to vote this way. In 
Precinct six, twenty-eight Democratic and twenty-one Republican voters chose this way to vote. These totals 
and the first printout from the machines in these precincts were all totalled together to give us the final

each candidate over our Channel 30 WCTV.

TOWN OF WILMINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS 



NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
June 30, 1990 
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies 

The accounting policies for financial reporting purposes of the Town of Wilmington 
conform to generally accepted accounting principles for local governmental units except 
as indicated in Note 2. The following is a summary of the significant accounting 
pol icies: 

A. Fund Accounting 

The town reports its financial activities in several funds and one account group 
in order to comply with the limitations and restrictions placed on both the 
resources made available to the town and the services provided. The various funds 
are grouped in the financial statements in this report into five generic fund 
types and two broad fund categories as follows: 

GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS 

General Fund - The general fund is the general operating fund of the town. It is 
used to account for all financial resources except those required to be accounted 
for in another fund. 

Special Revenue Fund - General Revenue Sharing - This special revenue fund is 
used to account for the proceeds of the State and Local Fiscal Assistance Act and 
their expenditures as prescribed by the Office of Revenue Sharing. 

Special Revenue Funds - Others - This special revenue fund is used to account for 
the proceeds of specific revenue resources (other than general revenue sharing, 
expendable trust or major capital projects) that are legally restricted to 
expenditures for specific purposes. 

Capital Projects Fund - This fund is used to account for the purchase or 
construction of major capital facilities. 

FIDUCIARY FUNDS 

Trust and Agency Funds - Trust and agency funds are used to account for assets by 
the town in a trustee capacity or as an agent for individuals, private 
organizations, other governments and/or other funds. These include expendable 
trust, non-expendable trust and agency funds. Non-expendable trust funds are 
accounted for in a manner that permits the periodic measurement of revenues 
earned, expenses incurred and/or net income in order to demonstrate maintenance of 
capital. Expendable trust funds are accounted for in essentially the same manner 
as governmental funds. Agency funds are custodial in nature (assets equal 
liabilities) and do not involve measurement of results of operations. 

ACCOUNT GROUP 

Long-Term Debt and Liabilities - Long-term liabilities expected to be financed 
from governmental funds are accumulated in the general long-term debt group of 
accounts. This account group is not a fund. It is only concerned with the 
measurement of financial position and, therefore, is not involved with a 
measurement of the results from any operations. 

B. Basis of Accounting 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared principally on the 
modified accrual basis of accounting. This method recognizes revenues when they 
become measurable and available. Expenses are recognized under this method as 
they are incurred.

Revenue Recognition - Property tax revenues are recognized when they become 
available. Available means then due or past due and receivable within the current 
period or expected to be collected soon enough thereafter to be used to pay 
liabilities of the current period. 

All other revenues are recognized throughout the year when cash is received. 
Receipts during the sixty days immediately following the close of the fiscal year 
are also recognized as available revenue. 

In applying the susceptible to accrual concept to intergovernmental revenues, the 
legal and contractual requirements of the numerous individual programs are used as 
guidance. There are, however, essentially two types of these revenues. In one, 
monies must be expended on the specific purpose or project before any amounts will 
be paid to the town, therefore, revenues are recognized based upon the 
expenditures recorded. In the other, monies are virtually unrestricted as to 
purpose of expenditure and are usually revocable only for failure to comply with 
prescribed compliance requirements. These resources are reflected as revenues at 
the time of receipt or earlier if the susceptible to accrual criteria is met. 

Expenses - Expenditures are recorded during the year on a cash disbursement 
basis. In addition, as required by Massachusetts General Laws, disbursements made 
during the fifteen days immediately following the close of each fiscal year and 
which pertain to the prior year are recorded as warrants payable and expenses as 
of June 30th. 

Purchase orders outstanding at June 30th related to annual operating expenses are 
recorded as encumbrances and, accordingly, as a reservation of fund balances at 
that date. 

Deferred Revenue - Property taxes and other revenues that are measurable but not 
available have been classified as deferred revenue on June 30, 1990. 

Departures from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles 

For years prior to 1985, the town presented its financial statements on the basis of 
accounting practices prescribed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of 
Revenue. These practices differed in many significant respects from G.A.A.P. 

During 1981. the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a revised uniform municipal 
accounting system entitled "U.H.A.S." The departures from G.A.A.P. under this revised 
system have been significantly narrowed. The town has adopted a modified U.M.A.S. for 
its financial statement presentation for 1985. 

The significant departures from G.A.A.P. included in the Town of Wilmington's financial 
statements are: 

a. Retirement benefits are provided for on a "pay-as-you-go" basis rather than an 
acceptable acturarial cost methods (see note 5). 

b. General fixed asset acquisitions are recorded as expenditures at the time 
purchases are made rather than being capitalized in a general fixed asset group of 
accounts. 

c. Purchases for materials and supplies inventories are recorded as expenditures 
rather than assets at the time of purchase.
